I'm new to working with Zimlets, and I am curious if the following is possible. We are working on a Zimlet that will be checking an external source for some info We want the checks to be done automatically though...maybe when a get mail is done or the every 5 minute refresh. If a flag is set external source that the zimlet would be checking for, we would like the Zimlet icon to change in some form..maybe change colors or something.

I'm pretty sure we can get everything done, but not sure about the Zimlet icon and auto-checking in the 5 minute refresh. Anyone have any suggestions?
