represents a function to be applied whenever the symbol symb gets a new value.


  • To use ValueFunction, you first need to load the Experimental Functions Package using Needs["Experimental`"].
  • The assignment ValueFunction[symb]=f specifies that whenever symb gets a new value val, the expression f[symb,val] should be evaluated.
  • If the value of symb is cleared, f[symb] is evaluated.
  • ValueFunction takes account of all ways that the value of a symbol can be changed, not just Set.
