    I try to make the text property of C1Button to blink. It works well with a native winform button with the following code but I cannot get it to work with C1Button. W:

    Private Sub btnBlinck(ByRef xbTrueOrFalse As Boolean)
    If xbTrueOrFalse = True Then
    If btnSave.ForeColor.Equals(System.Drawing.Color.Blue) Then Exit Sub

    btnSave.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue
    tmrSave.Interval = 300
    tmrSave.Enabled = True
    If btnSave.ForeColor.equals(System.Drawing.SystemColors.ControlText) Then Exit Sub
    btnSave.ForeColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.ControlText
    tmrSave.Enabled = False
    End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub tmrSave_Tick(ByVal eventSender As System.Object, ByVal eventArgs As System.EventArgs) Handles tmrSave.Tick
    btnSave.ForeColor = IIf(btnSave.ForeColor.Equals(System.Drawing.Color.Blue), System.Drawing.SystemColors.ControlText, System.Drawing.Color.Blue)
    End Sub

    Hi Florent,

    I have attached a sample which shows blinking text in the C1Button.
    If you are doing something else as implemented in the sample then please let us know and modify the sample accordingly.

    Yes, I forgot to mention that the form also has a C1ThemeController on it.
    Even if I set to "none" the theme on the C1Button, it does not blink.

    Sorry, but we did not face the issue by using C1ThemeController at our end.
    We have modified the last attached sample implementing the same, please have a look.

    I've updated the first sample with C1ThemeController. It does not work (but your second sample works)

    Hi Florent,

    In your last attached post, the VisualStyle property of C1Button is Custom, please change it to System to make the sample work as desired:
    Me.C1Button1.VisualStyle = C1.Win.C1Input.VisualStyle.System

    Hi Prabhat Sharma,

    Even if I update to System, if I set to (default) the Theme on the C1Button, it does not blink. How is it possible to apply a custom theme and make the button blink?
