Hi,

here is a simple example how to create a palette with 2 buttons. The 

buttons do nothing else than print a message. First create the buttons by:

Grid[{{Button["Hello",Print["Hello"]]},

{Button["Good morning",Print["Good morning"]]}

}]

then select both buttons and click: Menue/Palettes/Generate Palette from 

Selection. This will create a palette.

hope this helps, Daniel
