Abstract

This is a replacement for the tk_messageBox on the Macintosh with a native implementation which is compliant with the Appearance Manager in Mac OS 8 and later.

Rationale

The present (in 8.3.2p1 and earlier) tk_messageBox on the Macintosh is non-movable, and lacks many features that are required to be compliant with Mac OS 8 and later. Non-movable dialogs should be abandoned in a multitasking environment. This TIP presents a step to extend the native appearance on the Macintosh.

This is the present tk_messageBox.

This is the native tk_messageBox.
