  • You could animate the Opacity property of the TextBlock to make it blink:

    <TextBlock x:Name="textBlock" Text="Blinking!">
                <TextBlock.Triggers>
                    <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="TextBlock.Loaded">
                        <BeginStoryboard>
                            <Storyboard>
                                <DoubleAnimation
                                    Storyboard.TargetName="textBlock"
                                    Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity"
                                        To="0" Duration="0:0:0.5" 
                                        AutoReverse="True" RepeatBehavior="Forever" />
                            </Storyboard>
                        </BeginStoryboard>
                    </EventTrigger>
                </TextBlock.Triggers>
            </TextBlock>

  • There's no property that does that.  You could set the text to null and then back to the text repeatedly.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
