You could also look at creating buttons with the following statements:

 stencil := EllipseMorph fromHand: ActiveHand.
  Creates an EllipseMorph interactively (pick center and extent). Ditto for 

EllipseMorph newFrom: ActiveHand.
RectangleMorph newFrom: ActiveHand.
PolygonMorph newFrom: ActiveHand.
  button friendly versions for creating shapes directly in the world.

SketchMorph fromPolygon.
SketchMorph fromLasso.
World grabFloodFromScreen: nil.
  Button friendly versions of 'grab with rubber band', 'grab with lasso' and 
'grab flood area'.

    shadow := SketchMorph withForm: someMorph silhouetteForm.
    sketchBelow := SketchMorph withStencil: someMorph.
