    Hey- I was wondering- could any one post their copy of mac os x leopard's (PPC) dock? I want to see if I can use xCode to get it to work on Tiger

    Thanks

    Doesn't it use Core Animation? If so, you'd need to port the whole API which is 10.5+ only.

    You can't ''copy'' it as such but there is a Leopard theme for Tiger, called Liger. Google it, I wouldn't recommend it though as you get awful screen tear in the dock and Application Enhancer is needed, and it's awful.

    Enjoy! :rolleyes:

    that is what I have- the liger dock. I was just wondering if someone with leopard could go to HD/system/library/coreservices/dock.app and upload it for me.

    Theres no point. The .app file doesn't contain the source code for the application, just machine code - converting the machine code "back" to source code is likely to be impossible, or at least a nightmare, and its certainly not something that Xcode can do. XCode is a development tool, it is not a reassembler. And the 10.5 dock requires the Core Animation framework, which is built separately, and is likely impossible (or at the easiest incredibly difficult) to port back to 10.4

    Thanks for the reply. It's alright... I upgraded to leopard today any way... Just wanted to see, out of interests sake, if it is possible.
