IDE Notifications

Can plugins generate there own notifications that blink in the bottom of
IDEA like the exceptions, facet notifications, and blog-post
notifications?

I had thought maybe something might have been added to the
com.intellij.openapi.ui.Messages class for such background notifications
but doesn't seem to be anything there.

Cheers,
Mark

Hello Mark,

There is no standard API for blinking, but you can add your custom components
through StatusBar.addCustomIndicationComponent().
