Nothing wrong with your code. This function is just meant to provide temporary display of some element attributes. It will only highlight edges - exactly what is done internally in, for example, the element information command selection:

To your original problem: there is no way to set element colors independently. CAE.FeElement inherits from TaggedObject, not DisplayableObject and has no color property.

 

The only way to color elements is by setting the mesh color. You can use the extract command to extract your groups of elements into separate meshes and set the colors of those meshes independently. CAE.Mesh does inherit from DisplayableObject and does have a color property than can be set.

Smiley Sad This method is very  complexity and inefficient.Onec my group elements change,i must merge useless meshes and   extract new meshes.
