Hi,

CreatePalette[Grid[
   {{Button["[",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, "["]]],
     Button["]",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, "]"]]]},
    {Button["{",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, "{"]]],
     Button["}",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, "}"]]]},
    {Button["(",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, "("]]],
     Button[")",
      With[{nb = InputNotebook[]}, NotebookWrite[nb, ")"]]]}}]
  ]

will make a palette with [,],{,},(,) that are interted into you
active notbook.

Regards
