Hello!

I would like to ask you, I have a php script, which is sending me on start the 'hello world' text. Is there any idea how to put a blinking system tray icon on taskbar, after receiving this text from the browser?

Like instant communicators do..

Many Thanks!

Hello,

Perhaps you can do it using the "LoadIcon" action. This action allow you to change your main and tray publication icons. So, with a Timer object and this action you can show a "blinking" effect over these icons. Remember you need to compile your publication like a "System Tray Application (EXE)" in order to show the tray icon.

I prepare an example for you that show a "blinking" efffect over the referred icons. Maybe this sample can offer to you a solution or at least some ideas. You can download this sample from here: http://neoplugins.com/?download/trayiconblinking.zip

Just for your information if need to show desktop alerts to the user (as well the icon "blinking" effect) maybe my npDesk plugin can help you.
