How to Create Buttons

Paul J. Hinton
Organization: Wolfram Research, Inc.

1999 Mathematica Developer Conference
Conference location

Champaign, IL

Buttons provide a means of creating highly interactive notebooks; however, writing your own buttons to perform nonstandard tasks can be frustrating. This talk will discuss buttons from a fundamental viewpoint and demonstrate how to create and test them. The audience is assumed to have a basic understanding of the box expressions used in Mathematica's math editing environment, notebook manipulation commands, and pure functions.
