I have downloaded and applied annimated dockes but nothing happens. So I created a simple animated docket and changed the graphic but how do you make it a shortcut. When you right click/docket properties a dialog for a graphic comes up, but no where to select a program to make it a shortcut? how do they work? And are they just make to look pretty. or be functional? Thanks for you time and intellect in advance, iam bennu

It sounds like you may be looking at a "System Tray" dock entry.

For a normal dock (whether animated or not), you can right-click an empty space on the dock > select "Add" > "New Shortcut". This should place a default entry icon on the dock and invoke the dock entry properties dialog, which you can then use to select a link and an image.

You can alternatively drag-n-drop any program's executable file onto the dock (providing you have the "drag locking" feature deselected).

I wrote a series of tutorials on ObjectDock Plus, which may help. Here is one that illustrates editing a "non-tabbed" dock

Done I got the animation.dll from the Sunrise animated docket and it allowed me to make an animated shortcut.

Very nice.
