Visibility of label component to blink

Hi guys,

just working on my project here, playing around with the components to get a feel for designing. JW is there a way to make the label component blink in visibility?

Im able to alter the visbility off/ on depending on the tag binding, but if the tag was to be true i.e. an alarm, how would I make the image/ label component blink?

thank you for your time

Vision, or Perspective?

apologies, in vision

I would recommend not using blink animations via the style customiser (I presume this is what you’re using elsewhere?).
These are not synchronised between components and look unprofessional if you have multiple components all blinking out of sync with each other.
I use a client tag that is pulsed with a client timer script. I then also use this for component visible bindings to flash them as well

Oh I see, that is a great way around it. thank you!

If its an even on/off time, I have also used an expression client tags to do the same function.

getSecond(now())%2

hi @bpreston, where would i incorporate this …can it be on the script editor or would it only fall into the client timer script?
Thank you for the participation!

@nminchin mentioned cycling a client tag using a client timer script. For the way I mentioned you don’t need the client timer script at all. When you set up your client tag, you go to the Expression/SQL section of the tag and set it to expression and insert the expression I showed. That expression does a 1 second pulse. You can change it based on how fast or slow you want the pulse to be.

I should mention, the reason I put into a client timer script is because I have various pulses defined, 125, 250,500,1000,2000ms
I really only use the 500ms and it was easier to calculate these via script than expression. If you don’t need pulses faster than a second, you can certainly do as @bpreston says.

Fyi this is what I use:
