Create the "Find" window in a script

I am writing a script to highlight test points by net, so I can spread them across the board for power and ground nets. This works fine, except that it isn't easy to see when the test points highlight in larger boards, particularly busy ones.  My script shuts off every layer except the bottom side, shuts of traces, outlines, ref des and text.  It then turns all the pads and vias dark blue, but it still isn't easy to see when they light up, mostly because I also color code my power and ground pins.  I can right click and bring up the Find window before running the script which does what I want.  As the test points are selected and highlight on the board, they also highlight in the find window (without the clutter), but I would like to invoke the find window from within the script.  Anyone know how to do this?
