Please review the attached code.   I need to Blink the "Background" Color of the entire "Gridview" row based on the value of column [12] utilizing "JQuery".   I do not want to Blink the text only the background color.

public partial class BigBoardDisp : System.Web.UI.Page
{

    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound (object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "AOG" || e.Row.Cells[6].Equals(DBNull.Value))
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
            }

            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "RDY")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Aqua;
            }

            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "WKG")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightSkyBlue;
            }

            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "INSP")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow;
            }

            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "BOB")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Lime;
            }

            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "On-Time")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.SpringGreen;
            }
            else if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "MX-Delay")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Crimson;
            }

            if (e.Row.Cells[6].Text == "AOG")
            {
            e.Row.Cells[6].Text = "<FONT class='jqueryBlink'>" + e.Row.Cells[6].Text + "</FONT>";

        }

    }

Instead of putting a font tag with class in the text property of the cell, I would add a class to the row. Perhaps you can use
e.Row.CssClass="jqueryBlink"

After that it's up to jquery to capture the tablerows having the class and start blinking.

I created a fiddle for you : http://jsfiddle.net/j79kR/

This blinks all the row alternately.   I need code similar to that above for flashing (text) that blinks only rows meeting specific criteria without using css.   In the above examples it is utilizing "FONT" class.

For examplethe following code flashes the hyperlink column cell red/yellow based on MMCO-Open.   What I am looking for is for the entire row to blink based on a similar condition.

if (e.Row.Cells[12].Text == "MCO-Open" || e.Row.Cells[12].Text == "MMCO-Open")
        {
            HyperLink lnkMCO = (HyperLink)e.Row.Cells[1].Controls[0];
            lnkMCO.Text = "<FONT class='jqueryBlink'>" + lnkMCO.Text.ToString() + "</FONT>";
            //lnkMCO.ForeColor = Color.Red;
            lnkMCO.Style.Add("text-decoration", "none");
            e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow;
