Audible Alarm and automatic Mnimized to Maximized

One of my customers is now using PI Porcessbook to monitor a few critical values with their operators. The operators are required to have a screen with these values on it and the trends and they are supposed to keep a random watch to ensure that the values are within tolerance. I have already added blinking red conditionals to the screen so that it is very apparent as to when we are out of tolerance.


My customer has the following additional requests:


1) An audible alarm when out of tolerance and the alarm needs to become active even when the display is not focused or is minimized.


2) If any of the values is out of tolerance and the display is minimized, it will become maximized.


Is it possible to do this in Porcessbook and how? is there a more reccomended way of doing this, possibly outside of Processbook?


Thank you in advance for your help in this matter
