How can I open a new form with:
1) Default minimize to task bar
2) Let it blinking until you open this form

This just like what icq does when you recv a message.

Thanks a lot
Henry

Hi HenryChanE,
Use this code:

Private Declare Function FlashWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal bInvert As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
Me.WindowState = vbMinimized
FlashWindow Me.hwnd, True
End Sub


Regards
Saurabh
