Hi Szabolcs,

Why not use run-time code generation?

ClearAll[withPaletteButtons];
SetAttributes[withPaletteButtons, HoldFirst];
withPaletteButtons[code_, tooltipFunction_: First] :=
  Unevaluated[code] /.
   HoldPattern[Button[args__, opts : OptionsPattern[]]] :>
    Tooltip[Button[args, Appearance -> "Palette",opts],
     tooltipFunction[Hold[args]], TooltipDelay -> Automatic];

You use it as:

withPaletteButtons[
 CreatePalette[{Button["Button1"], Button["Button2"]}]]


Cheers,
Leonid
