backface culling per object

i mostly model. not too big of a mel person,
ive looked at many toggle tool sets and scripts, but ive not found a back face culling tollge.
anyone can help?

a poor attempt...
this seem to turn it on, but does not act as a toggle.

if (`getPanel -to (eval("getPanel -withFocus"))`){
$currentPanel = `getPanel -withFocus`;
if (`modelEditor -q -polymeshes $currentPanel`){
polysDisplayUpdateCulling $currentPanel;
else {
modelEditor -edit -polymeshes polysDisplayUpdateCulling 0 $currentPanel;
also is this possible to have a similar drawing in the viewport as XSI hidden line mode?
here are the pics below to show what i mean.

that is statistically impossible

For the first question.
I'm currently using this script.
This isn't my script,but somebody in Japan made this.
I think this will solve your first ploblem.

global proc tglCulling()
if(`window -q -ex tcwin`)
if(`intField -q -v if1` == 0){ polyOptions -fb -bcv on; intField -e -v 1 if1; }
else{ polyOptions -bc -bcv off; intField -e -v 0 if1; }
window -ret -vis off tcwin; columnLayout; intField -v 0 if1;

I hope this helps.
sorry for my bad English. ush
