Detailed Description

A class for highlight features on the map.

The QgsHighlight class provides a transparent overlay canvas item for highlighting features or geometries on a map canvas.

color = QColor(Qt.red)
highlight = QgsHighlight(mapCanvas, feature, layer)
highlight.setColor(color)
color.setAlpha(50)
highlight.setFillColor(color)
highlight.show()
