more or less. you have 7 or 8 graphics objects where you can use picture files, you have pseudo-quickdraw, and if you are completly mad you could also use video and GL stuff.

shameless selfpromotion: look my GUIs here, done 20 years ago in OS9.

The Apple Developer Connection Reference Library​

Apple produced a monumental amount of developer documentation, but resurrecting it from internet bitrot takes a bit of effort.

I've taken a copy of the reference library from the last ADC DVD set before the library was re-oriented towards Snow Leopard, put it up on github (with all of the sample code .zip files expanded for online browsing) and made it browseable via plain HTTP at http://leopard-adc.pepas.com/

I've also corrected all of the "Featured Article" links (which are all long-since defunct links to developer.apple.com) to point to copies from the Internet Archive via the Wayback machine.

There, in legacy documents,
http://leopard-adc.pepas.com/referencelibrary/LegacyTechnologies/index-date0.html
 if you browse bottom you can find some docs that I think are missing today on Apple Developer link
