I want to indicate which parameter is selected on the LCD by making a character blink. I know I can blink the cursor, but that doesn't really help me. Is it possible to make just one character blink?

OK, I just made it work. Thanks for help. I ended up trying the following:

I printed the number.
Then, I used the setCursor command to move the cursor back to the same spot.
Then I used lcd.Blink(); to make it blink.
Then I had a delay(20);
Then I read the value of the POT position.
Then I looked to see if they pushed the button to confirm the selection.
Then I went back to the top if they had not confirmed the selection yet.

It works great!
