Background

FilledSmallSquare Background is an option which specifies the background color to use.

FilledSmallSquare Background is an option for graphics functions, Text, Cell and ButtonBox.

FilledSmallSquare The setting for Background in graphics functions must be a CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue or RGBColor directive.

FilledSmallSquare The default setting in graphics functions is Background->Automatic, which produces a white background on most output devices.

FilledSmallSquare In Text, Background->None draws no background rectangle around the text and Background->Automatic draws a background rectangle in the same color as the background for the whole plot.

FilledSmallSquare In a cell, the background is used only for the region inside any cell frame.
