RowBox

RowBox[{box1, box2, ...}]
is a low-level box construct that represents a row of boxes or strings in a notebook expression.
  • RowBox is generated by functions like Row. Except for low-level notebook expression manipulation, RowBox should not need to be used directly.
  • RowBox objects are generated automatically to correspond to each operator and its operands in input given as \(input\).
  • The default arrangement of RowBox objects in \(input\) is based on operator precedence. Additional \(...\) can be inserted like parentheses to specify different arrangements of RowBox objects.
  • The boxes or strings in a RowBox are output in a row with their baselines aligned.
