I am using ScriptUI for the first time and would like to create a custom palette with several text boxes and buttons that can be conveniently docked into the Photoshop UI.

Can this be accomplished using a script?

A quick search for "scriptui dockable palette" yielded this thread - it's for InDesign but should apply to Photoshop as well. And just as a heads up, questions that are more about how to script something might end up being closed as off-topic. As you learn Adobe scripting, you might be better served at Stack Overflow or the Adobe forums (although if the moderators were okay with scripting questions being answered here, I'd be okay with that too!). – Brendan Jan 21 '13 at 22:08
@Brendan thanks for the link, so it seems that this is not possible without using Extension Builder or by implementing a custom plugin using C++. – Lea Hayes Jan 21 '13 at 23:02

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Hello user1844884, welcome to GDSE and thanks for your answer. Could you please tell us a bit more about what we will find at these links and why they are answering the question? In this case, your answer is also useful in case the links break at a later time. Link rot is exactly why we aren't very happy with link-only answers here. Thanks again and enjoy the site! – Vincent Jul 25 '14 at 11:32
