Both of these work for me in 9.0.0rc1 and 9.0.0 on 10.13.3 (using the  
default widget with the 4 items):

set the hilitedItem of widget "Navigation Bar" to 4
set the hilitedItemName of widget "Navigation Bar" to "search"

By some chance do you have more than 1 navbar widget which is  
unintentionally sucking up the message path?
