You have to use a timer control, set the interval to what rate you want your text to blink, enable it and use some code like this:

Private bBlinkOn as Boolean

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
  if bBlinkOn then
    me.Caption = "My Form has a blinking caption!"
  else
    me.caption = "My Form has a"  
  end if
End Sub

Thanks ElmerFud! You're a lifesaver. You've saved me a lot of time. I had researched Microsoft Developer's Network and had not found an answer. It looks so simple when someone show's you  how....
Thanks again.
