Hi!

You need WinAPI function FlashWindow() or FlashWindowEx().

In this case you need FlashWindowEx() and setup params for flashing. Check MSDN for bits you need to set on to keep window flashing until it activated by user.

Is there any known issues with FlashWindowEx

Some applications (MSN, ICQ) continue showing taskbar buttons highlited even for the messages I had already read after unlocking my computer. This is happening sometimes. There is no particular way to reproduce it.
