Abstract

When an asynchronous event takes place in a software application it is sometimes necessary to report this to the end user. This event can arrive while the end user is using a completely different software application which is obscuring the application which has the event to report. An algorithm is disclosed which will demonstrate a way to report the asynchronous event through the resurfacing of the software application window.
