TclMacBag's widgets, while designed to produce an appealing look on Mac, are also intended to render as platform appropriate on any other platforms they're used from.

PNB (Panther Notebook)

Panther Notebook (PNB)

A long awaited widget on the Mac platform when it first arrived, the PNB provides access to a Mac OS X 10.3+ style notebook for Tcl/Tk.

The standard Panther appearance (equivalent to the 'tnb' style above) will be native to Tk 8.6 (Tile) on Mac (Cocoa).

The PNB's styles are supported on TclMacBag from v0.18 onward.
