Manual Lense - focus confirmation on entire screen or just point ?

When using a manual lense and trying to focus, the usual Nikons have the focus confirmation but just on a point - the >o< feature indicating which way to focus to achieve focus at the chosen point.

However - I forgot the settings- but on new lenses and cameras on automode you get feedback via these red squares in the view finder which all parts of the photo currently are sharp if you take the photo. Surely this should also be able for a manual lense, so that I should be able to ask the camera if I take a photo what parts will be sharp ?

Can my D7100 do this e.g. with a Nikon Ai 50 1.8 ?

Example here ...
