Many of our customers do not realize that the Application Button is an actual button with a lot of important functionality behind. Is there any built-in help that could be displayed during the first start?

When starting Word 2007 the first time, there is a Pop-Up which points to the Application Button and the button flashes several times. Is there a possibility to do the same with your control?

What we have found out that it is quite difficult (though possible) to implement this flashing with the current version (3.2). This is because the button does not have enough public methods and properties to do this easily. We are working on a new version, which features the Office 2010 UI. It should be released within two weeks. In this new version we can add a feature that would allow you to flash the Application Button easily. We will even add this feature to the Ribbon UI sample. If you can wait until the new version, that would make you request easier for us.

We will prepare a sample with this feature and send it to you soon.
