    Late update...

    I just happened to notice that flashing the task bar button respectively window caption actually is the intended and documented behavior of Form::Activate() in case the calling application isn't the active one:

    So now the question is: Is there any (preferably "official") way for an application to activate itself? At least I didn't find one in either the System::Windows::Forms::Application or System::Environment (rather less likely) class.

    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.
