Notification in wxNotebook control

Post by AUser » Mon Oct 04, 2010 8:45 pm

Hello,

I use a wxNotebook control to present several data types to the user (grid, text field, image). The text field however is only rarely updated (usually if there is some non-critical error).

I would like to "pulse" the tab, such as by altering the colour briefly, to notify the user that a tab which is not in the forground has output, without being distracting. Is there any way I can do this? I had a look through the reference pages, but could not find anything appropriate, so it may well be that the answer is simply "no", but I thought it worth asking. Even limited OS support would be better than nothing.

Thanks.

I don't think there is a way to change the tab color, but you could add an icon and make it blink between two images with a wxTimer ?
