Hi all,
I need to start flashing the windows Taskbar tab associated with the frame of my java application if the application frame is hidden and the application wants to grab users attention. Is there anyway to do it?
This is a very common feature of windows applications (for example, IE). If IE is downloading a webpage and you go to some other window, the tab associated with the original IE window starts flasthing when the page is loaded.
Kindly let me know if you know how to do this and our users are asking for this feature.
thanks,
Tracy.
