Evaluator

Evaluator

is an option for objects such as Button, Dynamic, and Cell that gives the name of the kernel to use to evaluate their contents.

Details

  • The default setting is typically Evaluator->"Local".
  • Evaluator->None specifies that no evaluation should be done.
  • 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.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)
