FilledSmallSquare NotebookObject[fe, id] is an object that represents an open notebook in the front end.

FilledSmallSquare fe is a FrontEndObject which specifies the front end in which the notebook is open.

FilledSmallSquare id is an integer that gives a unique serial number for this open notebook.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm and OutputForm notebook objects are printed so as to indicate the current title of the window that would be used to display the notebook.

FilledSmallSquare Functions such as NotebookPrint and NotebookClose take NotebookObject as their argument.

FilledSmallSquare Within any open notebook, there is always a current selection. The current selection can be modified by applying functions such as SelectionMove to NotebookObject.
