Sean -

with Developer 6.0 you can embed JavaBeans into Forms application that are run in web mode.

You could easily replace the standard Textfield item with a JavaBean that performed this explicit task. The JavaBean would run wholly within the client machine and would alleviate the need to create a timer on the server to send a message to the client textfield to blink.

This would also reduce network traffic for your application.

The Builder contains some online help that describes how to create these 'Pluggable Java Components' and JavaBeans that are capable of being embedded in a forms application.
