The Macintosh Toolbox is a collection of system software routines that your application can use to present a consistent and standard interface to the user; these routines also allow you to simplify other tasks your application might need to perform.

Macintosh system software contains a powerful set of routines that your application can use to create windows, manage menus, paint objects, display text, open files, share data between programs, and print files, as well as perform many other helpful tasks.

The Macintosh Toolbox encompasses a number of system software routines, most (but not all) of which help present your application’s interface to the user. Some of these routines include those provided by the Event Manager, Menu Manager, Window Manager, Control Manager, Dialog Manager, Help Manager, Resource Manager, and Scrap Manager.
