    There is a family of Skill APIs that start with axlVisible (see the Allegro Skill Reference Manual).These will allow you to natively modify the visibility of layers via a Skill program. ColorViews (.color files) are just Allegro scripts that uses the the Allegro "color" command with arguments. The easiest way to learn how these work is to create a few and view them to understand the argument syntax.
