blinking images and messageBox colors

Avatar

19-12-2008

I am looking for the most efficient way to create an image (such as a .gif or .jpg) that blinks for a specified amount of time. I tried to do something with the setTimeOut method, but Adobe doesn't seem to like it.



I would also like to change the color of messageBoxes based on certain events, but am not sure how to reference the color value of the box.



Any thoughts or suggestions?



Thank you



Brian

I have not seen either one of your request done before. The only way I can think of to have a blinking image is to create an animated gif.....but I do not think that the gif will animate in PDF.



The messageBox is created by a call to the Javascript engine and the color of the box is not exposed as a changeable parameter.

would it be possible to cover the gif with a rectangle and have it cycle through visibility and invisibility?



I figured the messgeBox color was a long shot, but worth asking.



thank you for your assistance.

Potentially but I would be concerned about performance ...you will have to try it and see.
