How to highlight each UI element while running

While learning UIPath, I came across a task where I had to highlight each UI element that is being used.

The UI elements are usually highlighted when the process is running in debug mode

If I have to perform the same thing while executing it, what should I do?

Hello @sagar.raval ,

For highlighting a process during its execution, you could use the Highlight activity.

Please refer to

Best regards,

Use can use “Highlight Activity”
Give Selector of that element. It will hight and move for next steps. But it will highlight for few seconds.

Can you please clarify if I have to use highlight activity for each UI element activity separately

Even if I have to, how do I link them both since either the highlight activity should be before or after the UI element activity?

What can I do to make both of them work simultaneously?

Hello @sagar.raval ,

Please check this solution:

You should use the same uiElement for the highlight and click (or whatever UI activity) you are using.

I believe you can add them within a Run Parallel Process activity (link:

Hope it helps.

Hello @sagar.raval ,

In the debug ribbon of the studio there is an option Highlight Elements you can enable it and can see the highlighted elements while debugging.

I know that but i want to use the same functionality while executing the process
