Evaluator

Evaluator
is an option for objects such as Button, Dynamic and Cell which gives the name of the kernel to use to evaluate their contents.
  • The default setting is typically Evaluator->"Local".
  • Evaluator is more often set at a global level or at the level of whole notebooks than at the level of individual cells or other objects.
Create input cells with different Evaluator settings:
The first cell has no evaluator; the second cell uses the evaluator named "Local":
