NotebookObject[fe, id]
is an object that represents an open notebook in the front end.
  • fe is a FrontEndObject which specifies the front end in which the notebook is open.
  • id is an integer that gives a unique serial number for this open notebook.
  • 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.
  • Within any open notebook, there is always a current selection. The current selection can be modified by applying functions such as SelectionMove to NotebookObject.
