Do you mean that a hilited line in some sort of list or field 
un-hilites when you move away to do something else? This is likely 
normal behavior. I just had a similar issue, and assigned a custom 
property to my object, a list field, so that it would have its hilited 
lines restored when I returned

It required getting the hilitedLines property and setting a custom 
property in my field to it. This way the field remembers which lines 
were hilited when I left. The hilitedLines property is pretty cool, 
and even works with discontiguous lines.

If this is even close to what you want, try it out, or write back for

I have an Option button on a card that has values in the text.
I select from the list and this puts the selected value into the label.
When I select from the same Option button again, the row in the list 
show hi-lighted.

Why is this, and how do I get it to show selected in the list?
Would seem normal to do that in any other software.
