AJB I would agree, in the traditional since of a GUI. However, if you consider that TCL/Tk could be used as an interface to equipment on an industrial plant floor, then blinking buttons are extremely useful. They are the ideal way to grab a machine operator's attention. (i.e. you would flash the start button for a system that has stopped due to a critical fault)
.foo.button flashThat command will flash .foo.button from active to normal colors a couple of times. If you want it to continue flashing, you will have to place it within a loop.
