Patch #15947 has been added to tscreen 4.4, a fork of GNU Screen (http://www.steve.org.uk/Software/tscreen/).

The attached alternate patch (file #15947) adds attributes for the bell-windows in the %w list. The attributes (color and/or bold/blink etc) can be set using the %B command. An example hardstatus string would look like:

    "%B{r}%-Lw %{g}%t%{-} %+Lw"

A sample screenshot with that string: http://pidgin.im/~sadrul/ss/screen-bell.png ('src' is the active window, 'finch' is a bell window).

Hi. I would like to make a request to allow adding a list of windows-with-bell in the hardstatus line. This comes in handy for me in, for example, gaim-text where I can raise a bell when some event happens (for example, I receive some message from someone). The window-flag (!) does notify of a bell, however it's hard for me to distinguish because it has the same color as a normal window.

With the patch, if you add '%b' in the hardstatus line, then it will add the numbers of the windows-with-bell, and if you add '%B' it will add the titles of the windows.
