Sometimes we have to check the execution of just a part of a long VI and I use to do is:
- set a breakpoint just before the part,
- run the VI,
- wait for the breakpoint,
- set highlight
- and follow the execution.
I believe that would be nice to set the highlight just like breakpoint clicking over the wire and, when the execution reaches it, show the execution.
A stop highlight function could also be useful in some cases to highlight a part of the code without additional actions.
Did you mean, to be able to set the point when start highlight and stop it?
I think that this is a good idea too.

Yes, this is exactly what I meant.
One additional idea : at this point, we will need a Highlight Manager (like the Breakpoint Manager).
I like the idea of a start / stop highlight feature.. Nice enhancement!
I was thinking this exact thought earlier today! Glad someone already suggested it!
Too bad this is idea is over 2 years old and still isn't implemented. I wish for this every day!
This must be a difficult feature to implement because it's just too usefull to not already have implemented it otherwise. This would rapidly reduce debugging time as I wouldnt have to constantly pause & unpause breakoints.
Following the Ray.R idea It would be nice to set a region where the highlight is on. This would make the code slow only there.
i would love to see a feature like this
For me setting a breakpoint, then turning highlight execution on became quite bothersome on xControls.
And i am wondering, why not more ppl have this need (or kudoed this idea at least).
similar problem, different suggestion to go about it (about 270 kudos)
