Adding a "flashing" feature to a message?

hey! Just wondering how I would go about adding a feature that makes my message flash at the user to make it more evident when showing what they currently have selected? Thanks in advance!

hello @mattsaun, welcome to the Tulip Community!! it would be great if you could introduce yourself here: Welcome to the Community, let's meet!!

regarding your question, you could add a Timer Trigger that stores different colors in a Color Variable that you then display behind the Variable that the User selects. a Trigger like this will work well:

happy to hear it @mattsaun, let us know if you have any other questions!!

Another option would be to store your message into a variable and then use the ‘Blink’ customization option on the variable


Thanks Sarah, this way also works just as well. The messages I wanted blinking are already variables that display a table record so this was super easy. Thanks heaps!
