Description Stanislav Aubrecht 2012-08-28 09:11:44 UTC
JDeveloper teams needs a way to permanently highlight TopComponent's tab. There already is TopComponent.requestAttention(boolean) however it makes the tab flash either a couple of times or permanently. The first case is too brief, the second case is too distracting. I propose adding a new method stopAttention() that would stop the flashing of window and highlight it (using a different background color) permanently until user activates that window.

Created attachment 123646 [details] proposed API changes I've changed the method to TopComponent.setAttentionHighlight(boolean) and it is independent of requestAttention()/cancelRequestAttention() calls.
