GridBox

FilledSmallSquare GridBox[, , ... , , , ... , ... ] represents a two-dimensional grid of boxes or strings in input and output.

FilledSmallSquare In a notebook, columns of a GridBox can be added using ControlKeyLeftModified,RightModified and rows using ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified (Control-Return).

FilledSmallSquare ControlKeyLeftModified,RightModified or a menu item can be used to start building a GridBox.

FilledSmallSquare You can use tab to move from one entry in a GridBox to the next. ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified moves out of the whole GridBox.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm and InputForm, GridBox[list] is interpreted as list.

FilledSmallSquare You can place parentheses around a GridBox to make it look more like a matrix, but these are by default ignored when the GridBox is interpreted.

FilledSmallSquare The following options can be given:

FilledSmallSquare GridBox is a low-level construct that works only for two-dimensional arrays; TableForm and MatrixForm are higher-level constructs that can also be used for higher-dimensional arrays.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm, explicit GridBox objects are output literally. You can use DisplayForm to see the display form of such objects.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.9.10.
