  • FullOptions[ expr ] gives the full settings of options explicitly specified in an expression such as a graphics object.
  • FullOptions[ expr , name ] gives the full setting for the option name.
  • FullOptions[ expr , , , ... ] gives a list of the full settings for the options .
  • FullOptions[ object ] gives the full settings for options associated with an external object such as a NotebookObject.
  • FullOptions gives the actual settings for options used internally by Mathematica when the setting given is Automatic or All.
  • You can use FullOptions on graphics options such as PlotRange and Ticks.
  • If you ask for FullOptions[NotebookObject[... ], name ] the kernel will send a request to the front end to find the result.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.5Section 2.9.1.
