Navigate to [UFT Install folder]CodeSamplesPlus.

In this folder you'll find a file named HighlightObject.vbs (and several other code samples for various things). Using some modifications to the code in this file, you can choose whatever color (amongst other line options) that you want. Here's sample code that I made to do this. Changing the RGB values (see inline comments) will allow you to pick any RGB combination you like.

'Original UFT highlight function using Orasi.com
Browser(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Page(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Image(''Orasi'').Highlight

' Declare some necessary APIs
Extern.Declare micHwnd, ''GetDesktopWindow'', ''User32.DLL'', ''GetDesktopWindow''
Extern.Declare micULong, ''GetWindowDC'', ''User32.DLL'', ''GetWindowDC'', micHwnd
Extern.Declare micInteger, ''ReleaseDC'', ''User32.DLL'', ''ReleaseDC'', micHwnd, micULong
Extern.Declare micULong, ''CreatePen'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''CreatePen'', micInteger, micInteger, micDword
Extern.Declare micInteger, ''SetROP2'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''SetROP2'', micULong, micInteger
Extern.Declare micULong, ''SelectObject'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''SelectObject'', micULong, micULong
Extern.Declare micULong, ''DeleteObject'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''DeleteObject'', micULong
Extern.Declare micULong, ''GetStockObject'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''GetStockObject'', micInteger
Extern.Declare micULong, ''Rectangle'', ''Gdi32.DLL'', ''Rectangle'', micULong, micInteger, micInteger, micInteger, micInteger

'Set values of the object location
X = Browser(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Page(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Image(''Orasi'').GetROProperty(''abs_x'')
Y = Browser(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Page(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Image(''Orasi'').GetROProperty(''abs_y'')
H = Browser(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Page(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Image(''Orasi'').GetROProperty(''height'')
W = Browser(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Page(''Orasi Software, Inc'').Image(''Orasi'').GetROProperty(''width'')

'call the function
HighlightRect X,Y, W, H, 1

Function HighlightRect (X, Y, W, H, Times)

' Get the Desktop DC
hDC = Extern.GetWindowDC (Extern.GetDesktopWindow)
' Create a three pixels wide Pen
hPen = Extern.CreatePen (6, 3, RGB(102, 0, 255)) 'By setting RGB values can determine color (refer to http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp)
Extern.SetROP2 hDC, 5 ' Replace this number with values from below description
Extern.SelectObject hDC, hPen
' Use an empty fill
Extern.SelectObject hDC, Extern.GetStockObject (5) ' NULL_BRUSH

' Do the Highlight
For i = 0 to Times * 2 + 1
Extern.Rectangle hDC, X, Y, X + W, Y + H
wait 0, 50
Next

' CleanUp
Extern.ReleaseDC Extern.GetDesktopWindow, hDC
Extern.DeleteObject hPen

End Function

'ValueDescription
'R2_BLACKPixel is always 0.
'R2_COPYPENPixel is the pen color.
'R2_MASKNOTPENPixel is a combination of the colors common to both the screen and the inverse of the pen.
'R2_MASKPENPixel is a combination of the colors common to both the pen and the screen.
