The Highlight feature of the Interface Viewer might be considered the flip side of the point-to-identify coin. Whereas point-to-identify allows you to start with a known control or window on an application and find its node in the UI explorer panel, Highlight allows you to start from a node in the tree and locate the physical object it represents.

  1. In the UI Explorer panel, select the node that you are interested in.

  2. To highlight a control, do one of the following:

    • Click the Highlight button on the toolbar.

    • Alternatively, select Tools > Highlight Object from the main menu.

The Interface Viewer minimizes, brings the appropriate application window to the foreground, and flashes the corresponding control or window two or three times. Once completed, the Viewer pops back into the foreground of your screen.

An issue with Google Chrome exists, in which the Highlight feature cannot accurately display the positions of HTML controls when the Chrome download bar is active. The solution is to simply dismiss the download bar, which you can do by clicking the Close button to its right:.
