A mesoscopic continuum model is employed to model a thin, liquid film on a substrate with a spatio-temporal wettability. In particular, the effect of a switchable wettability pattern on the structure formation is analyzed for a one-dimensional case with the help of path-continuation techniques and direct numerical time simulations. It is found that if the periodic switching is introduced, the system reaction depends on the ratio between the time scale given by switching and the reaction time of the liquid. The behaviour of the contact angle during the slow and fast switching is investigated in details. Furthermore it is demonstrated that in the case of the slow switching the droplet solutions corresponding to the local minima of the free energy can be stabilized.
