Hi

I have a requirement, where if a message arrives from a server, the IE window(which may in the task bar) should start flashing - indicating to the user that there has been some change. Does anybody have an idea how we can accomplish flashing of an IE or a browser window in the taskbar of a user?

I am using AJAX to get notified about the changes , but how can i show it to the user ? I thought of alert , but this won't work if the user has minimized the browser in which my application is working ..

Any help would be appreciated in this regard

There is certainly no standard way of doing this. Whether IE has some weird proprietary extension to do this I do not know.
