# Highlight an item in a UIList

I have a UIList in which I list materials to which I have attached an additional EnumProperty.

My goal is to highlight items in this UIList based on this EnumProperty by changing their background color. Is this possible?

I guess something like

if item.my_enum == "target_value":
#I guess here i have to use something instead of layout.prop()?


in the draw_item() function is necessary?
