The type of layout for the buttons.
Initialization arguments for the layout.
The selection callbacks for each button.
The class of the buttons.
A list specifying mnemonics for the buttons.
inherits most of its behavior from choice, which is an abstract class providing support for handling items and selections. By default, a button panel has single selection interaction style (meaning that only one of the buttons can be selected at any one time), but this can be changed by specifying an

The layout of the buttons is controlled by a layout of class

Each button uses the callbacks specified for the button panel itself, unless the argument callbacks is specified. callbacks should be a list (one element per button). Each element of callbacks , if non-nil, will be used as the selection callback of the corresponding button.
button-class , if supplied, determines the class used for each of the buttons. This should be the class appropriate for the interaction , or a subclass of it. The default behavior is to create buttons of the class appropriate for the interaction .

mnemonics is a list of the same length as items . Each element is a character, integer or symbol specifying the mnemonic for the corresponding button in the same way as described for menu.
mnemonic-items is an alternate way to specify the mnemonics in a button panel. It is a list of the same length as items . Each element is a string which is interpreted for the corresponding button as its mnemonic-text initarg.
mnemonic-title and mnemonic-escape are interpreted as for menu. mnemonic-escape specifies the escape character for mnemonics both in the buttons and in the pane's title.
Button panels now default to having a maximum size constrained to their minimum size as this is useful when attempting to layout button panels into arbitrary spaces without them changing size. To get the old behavior, specify
