Window Blink Function

Recommended Posts

Everyone has seen the yahoo messenger, where when we receive a new message, the minimised window starts blinking with a sound.

I want to implement something similar here.

I retrive rows from a mysql database in a window which is being refreshed every 5 secs. So all i want is whenever there is a new row added in the database and it is retrieved on refresh, i want the window to blink, in case it is minimised.

Is this possible in php? Or in javascript or anyother scripting language??

Please share something if u know.

the javascript 'alert'/confirm/prompt functions all cause this to happen even if the window is minimized. only problem is that it can often depend on the user's setup (browser, O/S, etc)
