I need that when my application is minimized notify you when something happens, like the messenger (MSN) remember? The window notifying a new message, the minimized window blink in orange, orange need not be ok? Kkk! Does anyone know anything about it? I do not even know where to start.




Stay in peace.

The blinking orange is an effect applied by Windows to indicate a change in the application, maybe just when a new window is opened for the same process but I am not sure

So the first thing to try would be too open a little info box like MSN Messenger does and see if that gives you the blinking orange indicator. You will need to open the new window as a child to the original I think.

Oracle tutorial about that: How to Use the System Tray. That was what you meant, right?

(My web search keywords to find that were "swing minimized notification".)
