Action Recorder Xref Layer Color Change

Does anyone know of a way to change the color of an xref layer via command line by selecting the layer and not by knowing the layer name?  What I am trying to do is come up with an action recorder file that will allow you to change an xref layer color.  Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Other than layer standards, that all I have. I'm no code writer as you can see.
