As part of a package I am developing, I am programmatically generating palettes to enter symbols using the CreatePalette function. Because those symbols change completely from application to application, I never have a need to save that palette to disk. Is there a way to set up the palette so that upon closing it, I never get the dialog box asking if I want to save it?

Minimal example:

   WindowTitle -> "Example"];

To get the behavior I am trying to eliminate, move the palette from its original location and then click the x to close it.

    $\begingroup$ @KevinAusman you can also add System`ClosingSaveDialog->False if you'd like to retain Saveable (e.g. for the {"MenuCommand", "Save"} event binding) but not have it ask you. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 May 16 at 21:00
