You need to set up a timer on the window and use it to alternate the textcolor property.  You can do something like


long ll_textcolor

ll_textcolor = statictext.TextColor

CHOOSE CASE ll_textcolor
  CASE RGB(0,0,0)
      statictext.textcolor = RGB(255,255,255)
  CASE RGB(255,255,255)
      statictext.textcolor = RGB(0,0,0)

Then start the timer whenever you want to have the thing blink
Use TIMER(.25) for a quarter second interval or something similar
TIMER(0) turns it off.
