In my old vb6 app, I had a label with the date on it.
When the user clicked it, they were presented with a datetimepicker to change the date.
In my timer routine, I had a test loop that if the date differed from today, it would continually flash on/off red/bold until it was set back to today...

I find in http:/Q_21734897.html that to accomplish this in .net, I would be generating a new font object with every blink...
SO....there MUST be a better way...

Whatcha think?
