Hello everybody,
We have a chat kinda application which we have developed using JDK1.2. So lets consider a scenario when we have opened a message box to remote computer. Since at a given time there will be several message boxes opened for several clients, we may minimize the boxes. Now with these message boxes minimized, is there any means by which i can give a visual indication to the user that a message has come on one of these message boxes. Like is it possible to make the minimized box blink or change its color so that the user will know that some message has come to one of the message boxes.. Reply soon pls
Thanking u in advance
