creates and opens a palette notebook consisting of a sequence of cells containing the expri.
CreatePalette[expr, obj]

  • Possible forms for expr and expri include:
DocumentNotebook[...]a complete notebook
TextCell[...]a text cell
ExpressionCell[...]an expression cell
CellGroup[...]a cell group, potentially nested
"string"a string, inside a text cell
ean expression e, in an expression cell
  • CreatePalette[expr, obj] overwrites whatever data was contained in the notebook represented by the notebook object obj.
