Ooops. i meant the Location property.

The code below can be inserted into any member function of the main form window (such as an event handler) and executed arbitrarily.

The example below simply "nudges" the screen to the right by 10 pixels.

Point p = this.Location;
p.X += 10;
this.Location = p;

Open in new window

Yes. All you have to do is change the Position property of the main window.  Of course, the new position should be calculated from the current position so that you do get a nudge and not some random move.

You can flash the window ...


  something like this

  x = currentwindowxposition
  y = currentwindowyposition

  for (int i = 0; I < 100;  i++)
       if ( i mod 2 )  MoveWindow ( x-12, y );
       Sleep ( 100 );
       if ( i mod 4 )  MoveWindow ( x-24, y );
       Sleep ( 100 );
       if ( i mod 8 )  MoveWindow ( x+12, y );
       Sleep ( 100 );
       if ( i mod 10 )  MoveWindow ( x-24, y );
 MoveWindow ( x, y );

This will shake the window form side to side.
