How to toggle lineweight display?

A - answer To display or suppress lineweights of the individual line entities, you can either use the LWT button in AutoCAD status bar or the LWDISPLAY variable.

You can ue the following menu macro to toggle lineweight display (a single line):

^P'LWDISPLAY $M=$(if,$(and,$(getvar,lwdisplay),1),$(-,$(getvar,lwdisplay),1),$(+,$(getvar,lwdisplay),1))

You can use the CUI command to define a new Command containing this macro and assign it a new Keyboard shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+T).
