Hide selection hi-lite

A while back I was watching a tutorial, and the guy quickly hid the selection highlight of the selected object...so that even though the object was still selected and the parameters in the Attribute Editor were available for editing, in the display port it appeared that the object was de-selected. It was great because with a high-res object, the selection highlight just turns the object into a big green blob, and you can't see any detail. At the time I thought to myself, "I gotta remember how to do that".

Well, I don't remember, and I also don't remember what the tutorial was that I saw it in. Might have been a Digital Tutors or a Gnomon Workshop tut. It seems like it was a menu or something that was available from the Attribute Editor, but I'm not sure. I do remember that it was a really easy, one-click solution, something that was built into Maya and not hidden. And it didn't require a script, it was a menu item or a button or something.

Anyone know what I'm talking about, and know how to accomplish this?

It's in the Show menu for the view panel(s), just toggle off the check box for Selection Highlighting.
