using web/link to highlight specific item ?

I found a function in User Guide named pfcScript.pwlItemHighlight(), and the API Wizard showed the information about this function.

pwlItemHighlight (string SelString)

Highlights the specified item

Did anyone know the exact format of  input param 'SelString' ?

I had tried pfcModel.FullName, pfcModel.FileName and didn't work.

Hello,

you first have to define a selection in Weblink before you can highlight anything:

To build a selection of an item and/or a component in an assembly:

var MyItemSelection = pfcCreate("MpfcSelect").CreateModelItemSelection (MyItem, ItemComponentPath); // ItemComponentPath can be null in part mode

var MyCompSelection = pfcCreate ("MpfcSelect").CreateComponentSelection (MyComponentPath);

To highlight the selection in letter color/yellow:

MyItemSelection.HighLight (pfcCreate ("pfcStdColor").COLOR_LETTER);

To Unhighlight again:

MyItemSelection.Unhighlight();
