I highly doubt this is even possible - but I have made a form, which only looks up records that have been rejected. At the very top of the form - I have a label box saying "This record has been rejected... etc..."
For a lil touch of eye candy - I'd like for that text to blink/flash - whatever to definitly get the employees attention. (I know I could approach this other ways, by making popups or warning boxes or whatever... but I really only want what I specifically what I ask for)
If blinking/flashing text isn't possible, is a scrolling marquee possible?
'TimerInterval=1000 is for 1 second (5000 for 5 seconds, etc)
Private Sub Form_Load()
Me.TimerInterval = 1000
'on each Timer interval, flip-flop the label between
'being blank or showing the rejection text
If MyLabel.Caption = "" Then
MyLabel.Caption = "This application has been rejected!"
MyLabel.Caption = ""
For a blinking effect, try this in your Form_Timer (assuming Access XP or later):
Label4.Move Label4.Left - 1
