I am writing a testing application with Flex Builder 3. The
app displays one question at a time, and as the user submits their
response, the next question is automatically loaded. However, due
to the nature of the questions, it is difficult sometimes to see
when the new question has been loaded.
I thought it would be nice to add an Alert box as one
question is completed and the next question is loaded.
Unfortunately, Alert boxes require the user to click to remove
it--I'm looking for something that will stay there for about a
second and then go away on its own.
I tried messing around with other things like TitleWindows
and PopUpManagers, but these had quirky behavior and did not
automatically blur the background like an Alert box does.
Does anyone have any ideas of how I can accomplish this?

Use pop-up manager, and be sure to set the modal argument to
true. Only modals blur the background. you can use a timer like
Greg suggests to automatically remove the pop-up.

Disable the entire Application on submit, enable it on
