FormBox

  • FormBox[ boxes , form ] displays as boxes but specifies that rules associated with form should be used to interpret boxes on input.
  • In InputForm and StandardForm \( form\ ` input\ ) yields FormBox[ input , form ].
  • \(\` input\ ) yields FormBox[ input , RawForm].
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.10.
  • See also: TagBox, InterpretationBox, ToExpression, MakeExpression.
