Alas, you can't change the color of a Delphi button. Delphi's buttons have the same color as Windows' buttons. This color depends from the Windows version (XP, 2000, 98,...) and from what might have been changed by the user in Windows' "Display Properties".
There is no Delphi method to make a button "flash". But you could imitate flashing by showing and hiding the button's caption (text) every so many milliseconds, under program control.
Second solution: imitate (mimic) a colored button. Look here for an article about it.
Last possibility: get a custom button component that has a color property. There are several freeware colored
buttons around on the web.
