Thx Phil & Genx for your reply, i guest "Flashing Text" is not a feature in FM.

I just wish to have text flashing to remind user on certain screen to assist them goto specific open field , since fields of that screen mostly restricted, that's all.

As a matter of course I make it obvious, by design, which fields are display fields and which fields are entry fields.

Slight changes in the shade of colour used as the fill for a field can make it intuitive for a user to know what is going on on a layout.

You can also highlight an input field with a different coloured border but I have restricted this to an absolute minimum as I have not yet found a combination of background/field fill and border colour that wasn't a bit 'in yer face' as they say.

Good use of colours and layout combined with and Lee's tip about the tab order will get you the result that you want without upsetting any epilectic users you might have
