That same question was posted almost simultaneously by another user. So I guess, either you have two accounts or this is a classroom homework assignment.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'Desktop ticker', but I I'd go with AutoIt for this aim.[^]

It's a light weight script language for windows with (surprisingly) VB alike syntax

Thank you very much for you're response.

I will give u an clear picture about my question it is said below :

Application to display Messages in Desktop Bottom - We can have an application which will by default run on everyone system. Whenever a new notification or circular is sent, it will display a running message with the notification content in the bottom of the screen (like we get messages in bottom of TV) The message will run till the user closes the small message window in the bottom of the screen. So everyone will read n close the message. Messages will also be archived for future reference.

Kindly let me know which programming technology is suitable to use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

I'm sure there already are a lot of software solutions out there, which would meet your requirements.
But if you really want to develop it yourself, you will need something like a server application and a client program which listens on e. g. tcp-layer level for a certain port for incoming messages and notifies the users if so. Also its not recommandable to tell your client to listen continuously for new message because otherwise the network traffic will be so huge that your network will be slowed down tremendously, especially when there are many clients.

But still, most probably there are many better solutions for this.
