    Highlight Minimized Window on an Event

    Hello,

    Ive searched this forum and google for an answer to this but I cant seem to find too much perhaps my terminilogy is wrong.

    I have a dilaog box which acts like a Mud Client, what I would like to do is when the dialog is minimised and a message comes in for the minimised window in the task bar to appear darker or highlighted to indicate something has happened in the window. An example of this can be seen in applications such as Yahoo Messenger or MSN.

    At the moment I can restore the window when something happens but its not a good method as people minimise for a reason and therefore dont need it popping up every minute. Im using the following code :

    Code:
    ShowWindow(DialogWindow, SW_RESTORE);
    to restore the window at the moment. Would someone be able to advise what I need to read up on to achieve this ?

    Im not using MFC and is wrote in C and my Environment is Visual C++ 6.0

    Thanks in Advance.

    Mr Pickle.
