    Is there a way that the BIND feature can be taken away ??

    Sorry. I don't. Eliminating the bind option is definitely something I wouldn't
    implement for myself.

    Look at the :VLR-xrefSubcommandBindItem event and
    coordinate that with :vlr-command-ended event and/or
    other events to undo the actions of the previous command
    From the help files concerning the event above:
    "The BIND subcommand of XREF was invoked, or a pre-existing xref is
    being bound. Note that the BIND subcommand is interactive and triggers
    multiple events."

    In general, a reactor can not be used to interrupt a command in progress.

    Though it may be difficult/impossible to cancel/undo the effects of the bind
    subcommand, it would be easy to undo the entire effects of the xref command
    that included a bind operation.. I wouldn't, however, want to be the drafter
    dominated in such a fashion though.

    A polite alert reminder would be the method of choice for me. Something
    informative and polite but firm might help. Something like. "Continue this
    bind operation and I forsee pink slips in your future. >:-("

    Does that help? ;-)

    Something like:

    (setq nobindreact (vlr-xref-reactor nil '(:)vlr-xrefsubcommandbinditem . dontbindme))))
    (setq nobindcmdr (vlr-command-reactor nil '(:)vlr-commandended . nobindcmd))))

    (defun dontbindme (r l)
    (vlr-add nobindcmdr)
    (vlr-remove nobindreact)
    (alert "Please undo this operation when it finishes"))

    (defun nobindcmd (r l)
    (vlr-add nobindreact)
    (vlr-remove nobindcmdr)
    (alert "Execute the undo code")

    (vlr-remove nobindcmdr)

    You're welcome. Did that help?
