Need a basic script file that will flash an image on the desktop until canceled or timeout
Posted on 2004-10-13
I am needing to flash an image on a computer desktop to alert someone when new email arrives. The standard Outlook notifications are not good enough and we cannot use audio. So I thought I would just use a script or batch file that causes an image to flash on the desktop for a predetermined amount of time (say 30 seconds). I can create a rule in outlook to lauch the script or batch file when new email arrives. (not a problem) I just do not know how to write a script or batch that can flash an image and have it continue to flash that image for the set amount of time. Also, it would be good to have it also include a prompt that would allow for the user to kill the batch file if they are already near the computer. I guess I could use any image type for this batch file.
