    Just though I'd post this; Stimpy5050 of Macthemes.net has just released a much easier to operate Reflective dock widget based on that by Sakurina.

    Quoted from Macthemes.net:

    This version supports any variation of docks from 1-5 icons. It does not require you to copy any images. Simply edit the config.js file in the theme to add, remove and update the theme that hosts your dock and icons and which applications you have on your dock. The widget will find the icons in your other themes and render the reflections.

    Sorry, there wasn't one on his original thread at Macthemes.
    It looks the same as all the others; it's just easier to setup.

    Yes - otherwise it won't be able to pull up the icons you want to reflect, as it goes to the theme folder and pulls up the named file from said folder to draw. The default theme, if I'm reading the configure.jis right, is Smoog2, and it'll draw those icons listed in there... so if you don't have that theme in your Themes folder, it won't be able to do anything.

    ok I know this is a semi oldish thread but hey I'm trying to help above lol

    in the Reflective Dock.theme folder you will have a file called config.js

    open this with a text editor

    in the text editor you will have two lines appear ignore the first line and second line should look like the below

    Code:
    k = {"theme": "Smoog.theme", "icons": [ "Phone", "Mail", "Safari", "Calendar"] };
    
    first thing to change is the "theme": "Smoog.theme" part

    where it says Smoog.theme you change this to whatever theme name you have enabled, for me since I am using a modified picnic theme I will change the Smoog.theme to Picnic Clock Loaded.theme ...... I will now have:

    Code:
    "theme": "Picnic Clock Loaded.theme"
    next is the "icons": [ "Phone", "Mail", "Safari", "Calendar"] part

    this is straight forward you just replace with the names of the apps as they appear in the dock (Case sensative so where capitals you need to put captial letters)

    I am using a 5 icon dock (if your using 4 icons then you don't need to put a extra icon) so I will change this to:

    Code:
    "icons": [ "iPod", "Mail", "Safari", "Cydia", "iTunes"]
    so when put all together the 2nd line should look like this:

    Code:
    k = {"theme": "Picnic Clock Loaded.theme", "icons": [ "iPod", "Mail", "Safari", "Cydia", "iTunes"] };
    
    a file, now copy the Reflective Dock.theme to the winterboard folder via SSH and enable via winterboard
