Introduction:

I have a request from my Security team to have the Production TSO selection from my TPX Menu to be in another color from the others (possibly red) and blinking.

And after the Prod TSO is selected, can the actual TSO session have flashing text?

Question:

Can we customize a CA TPX session with color or blinking letters on the TPX menu?

Answer:
Since we build the TPX menu (TEN0041) dynamically using the panel )MODEL statement, we have no way to customize the type of text used for one session or another.
 
Alternate suggestions:
-Specify a label that makes the session stand out from other session descriptions on TEN0041.
-Also specify Menu Order 001 so that the session is first.
 
                      TPX MENU FOR      USER002            Panelid  - TEN0041 
                                                           Terminal - AXXTU010
Cmdkey=PF22       Jump=PF23      Menu=PF4                  Model    - 3278-2A 
Print=NONE        Cmdchar=/                                System   - TPXZ   
 
   Sessid      Sesskey       Session Description            Status
 
 _ TSOP        PF            >>>>> TSO PROD <<<<<<<<<<
 _ TPXADMIN    PF 5          TPX Administration
 _ TPXOPER     PF 6          TPX Operator
 
 
As for the TSO/ISPF menus, that would need to be done within the panels or coding for that product.
