Getting an icon to flash on the screen

Topic: Getting an icon to flash on the screen

Has anyone created flashing icons on the screen in Wialon based on a notification?

I want to set up a number of notification conditions and have an icon flash on the screen at the location that the notification message came from. I want different icons for different notifications.

Is this even possible?

Notification itself does not have icon. Icon is unit property. In standard interface icons are static, if you need to implement custom features in your web application, use Wialon SDK

Re: Getting an icon to flash on the screen

We have the SDK and understand that it takes some code to do this but wanted to know if it has been previously done so we could understand what the issues were in making it happen.

Does Gutram have any example code that we could look at?

We have many situations where text based notifications are not the best way to alert a monitoring staff of a condition, we want to make it visual as this conveys in my opinion better understanding of a situation. To understand which vehicle triggerd the notification you have to click on the notification to get it to diaplay on the map. On screen flashing icon's bypass this step and allow for more efficent monitoring.

It would be a great enhancement to have for a notification alert the option of an on screen flashing icon that could be selected by the user.

Can we have the developers look at creating a notification that allows users to have a new icon attached to the unit that triggered the notification. This could be an animated gif.
