APEX: Highlight a Record in Report - with Dynamic Action

Yesterday I wrote a blog on how you can highlight a record in a report. That blogpost can be found here. Learco Brizzi posted a comment on a different way of accomplishing the same thing. And there are probably a number of other possibilities to implement the same requirement. In this blogpost I want to show you how to do the same with a Dynamic Action. Why would you want to choose for a Dynamic Action? This is a more efficient way because you don't need to refresh the page or the region.

The question was: "How do I keep the clicked row highlighted so I can keep it as context information?" To see a working example of the requirement, check out this sample page In this blogpost I will provide a step-by-step way of doing just that.
