BlinkFlash Free Template Full Description:

The BlinkFlash free template by Sterling Data is a versatile extension for the Clarion platform, designed to provide enhanced visual alerts through blinking controls. With this template, users can configure an unlimited number of controls to blink, offering a dynamic and attention-catching user interface experience.

Key features and options include:

  1. Blink Start Delay: Users can set a specific delay before the blinking starts, ensuring timely visual alerts.
  2. Blink Duration: The template allows customization of how long each control will blink, offering flexibility in visual cues.
  3. Blink Type: Choose whether the text or the background of a control should blink, giving designers a choice in how the alert is presented.
  4. Blink Frequency: Control the speed of the blink to make it more noticeable or subtle as needed.

  6. Multiple Controls Support: Within a single window, multiple controls can be set to blink, providing a comprehensive alert system.
  7. Compatibility: BlinkFlash is designed to be compatible with Clarion versions C6 through C11, and it works seamlessly with both ABC and Legacy templates.
