I would like to implement the same flash feature command that ESRI uses when accessing the context menu on a table row.

I have used the following to flash a selected feature:

IActiveView activeView = ArcMap.Document.ActiveView;
IFeatureIdentifyObj featIdentify = new FeatureIdentifyObject();
featIdentify.Feature = feature;
IIdentifyObj identify = featIdentify as IIdentifyObj;
identify.Flash(activeView.ScreenDisplay);

This code works, but does not have the 'crosshairs' that the ESRI flash command does.

I was looking possibly executing a command with ICommand.Execute,   but could not find an ID for the Flash Command form the table context menu.

Anyone have success with implmenting the same Flash Command that ESRI uses within custom code?

Thanks,

Mele

I encountered the same situation and also want to know the anwser. Thank you for asking it before me.

IMapControlDefault.FlashShape also flashes the geometry, but still does not provide cross-hair

Has anyone found a Python equivalent for this?  Perhaps in the arcpy.mapping module?  I can't seem to locate it.
