Do you mean a flashing message on the browser's status bar? ...and when it should be displayed?

Do you mean... an easy way to notice when someone sends a message to the chat. And as a possible solution, send a flashing message to the browser's statusbar whenever you load/refresh any window used to browse the site where the chat is opened?

If that's the case, I was thinking in another approach -> just send a sound (ring, cling, ping, pong... or something, lol) whenever a new message arrives.

Question

I'm still confused...

Do you mean the Windows TaskBar?

That could be done (using javascript) by changing the window title (msg, blank, msg, blank, ...) for say 2/3 seconds or something....

edited: ...flashing the window button in the windows taskbar, can't be done from a browser, afaik. Confused

ok, understood.

But, it seems to me that can't be done from a browser. I'll try to search though.

There're lot of things that desktop programs can do, but are forbidden to (remote) web browser windows for security reasons (ie. popups, access to local files, etc.). Also the APIs available (mostly javascript) does not offer same kind of GUI interfaces.

AFAIK, there's no javascript function to do that.

Any hint?
