Hello,

 

Is it possible to create a blinking button gui control?

You could do something like this.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hGui = GUICreate("Test")
$idButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Blinking BG", 10, 10)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x008000)
$idButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" Blinking Text ", 10, 100)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x008000)
GUISetState()
AdlibRegister("BlinkTheButton", 1000)
While 2
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd
Func BlinkTheButton()
    Static $blink = False
    If $blink Then
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($idButton1, 0xFF0000)
        GUICtrlSetColor($idButton2, 0xFF0000)
        $blink = Not $blink
    Else
        GUICtrlSetBkColor($idButton1, 0x008000)
        GUICtrlSetColor($idButton2, 0x008000)
        $blink = Not $blink
    EndIf
EndFunc

It all depends on how fancy you want it to be, or how much you're willing to code it. :)

It worked. Do you know the default button background color of Windows?

You can use the Au3Info tool to tell you that, I'm not sure what it is.

Do you mean "AutoIt Window Info", right? I ran it but did not find the color information.

If you look at the Summary tab, you'll see the Mouse section of the summary, the color code shown is what is under the mouse cursor.

What I found in Windows 10 was:

Color:    0xF0F0F0
