O.P. BlinkText
Hello Forum,

normally im a web scripter and script things in php..c++...tcl..msl..java and so on.
due to many requests of some friends i created a "blink text" in JScript.
the sense is to let your personal status message blink.

for some reasons.. sometimes it doesnt work.

a friend installed it and i watched his pm..
it starts blinking normally, then stops for a few seconds and then it works again.

either i have a problem in my script or msn doesnt update PM`s that fast.
i attached my whole script so you can see it.

its my first script in JScript.. :)

the script is really simple as you see..

i hope you can help me..
greetz, Johnny

RE: BlinkText
It's because WLM doesn't update the psm that much, mainly to stop 'spam' like this from happening :p Can't remember the exact timings, there's a post on here somewhere detailing it iirc but I can't find it, someone else may be of more help, sorry. Thanks pldg :cheesy:

if you set it to refreash less then every 6 seconds, it will show on your computer, you can see it count down by the second, but on every other computer, it only updates every 6 seconds

Entire thread has lots of information on this, hope it helps.

ah yes i see. i was right... there is a limitation on WLM of 10 changes per minute..so when i change my monitor time to 6500 there will be no problems.

the thread is also really useful
thanks a lot!
