I am looking for a way to click on an element in an ex ref to shut it off.

LAYFRZ or LAYOFF commands are built-in and do that: just set them correctly (watch the command line).

Of are you trying to "hide" an object in an XREF instead?

I am trying to hide a layer in an xref.

Sorry, I did not state the question very well.

I have that toolbar, but they don't turn off an xref layer.

If it's a block, you should look at settings in the command line (like Dean had mentioned)

S(settings) B(block) choose Entities
