I don't speak for the SWT team, but it does not seem likely to become a
supported feature, as it may not be possible on all platforms. In
general (with a few exceptions), SWT is limited to supporting only
features that all OSs can support, sort-of like AWT (but much better).

The flashing window is a mechanism that XP uses to indicate that a
background application would like to bring a window to the top, but to do so
would steal focus from an application that has a foreground window. The
Windows API to do this is called SetForegroundWindow() and it is described
in painful detail here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/e n-us/winui/winui/windowsuserinterface/windowing/windows/wind owreference/windowfunctions/setforegroundwindow.asp

If you call Shell.forceActive(), we call SetForegroundWindow(). Hope this
helps.
