I see the Tree widget supports a hilitedElement property, which is 
useful for managing the selection in the UI.

Is there a one-liner for obtaining not the element path but the value?

It wouldn't kill me to extract the arrayData and turn a hilitedElement 
path like:


...into a proper array notation to obtain the value at:


But it seems such a common need I'm guessing I'm overlooking a more 
direct way to do that.
