is a low-level box construct that represents a button in a notebook expression.
- ButtonBox is the low-level representation of Button. Except for low-level notebook expression manipulation, ButtonBox should not need to be used directly.
- ButtonBox[boxes] displays as boxes and performs an action when it is clicked.
- The default action is to paste boxes at your current insertion point. Other actions can be specified using options.
- ButtonBox objects are used to implement palette buttons, hyperlinks, and other active elements in notebooks.
- ButtonBox objects are active when either they or the cell that contains them has the option Enabled->True.
- When ButtonBox objects are active, they perform an action whenever they are clicked. Otherwise, clicking them simply selects them or their contents.
- ButtonBox[boxes, BaseStyle->"style"] takes the properties of the ButtonBox from the specified style. The style for a ButtonBox can specify both its appearance and its action.
- The following options affecting button appearance can be given:
Background Automatic button background color ButtonFrame "Palette" the type of frame for the button ImageSize Full the size of the button FrameMargins Automatic the margin in printer's points around the contents of a button ButtonMinHeight 1.0 the minimum total height of a button in units of font size
- The following options affecting button action can be given:
ButtonData Automatic the second argument to supply to the button function ButtonFunction (pasting function) the function to apply when the button is clicked ButtonSource Automatic where to get the first argument of the button function Enabled Automatic whether to make the button always active Evaluator None where to send the button function expression for evaluation
- ButtonBox[...] is by default interpreted as Button[...] if it is given as input to the Mathematica kernel.
