LabelStyle

LabelStyle
is an option for formatting and related constructs that specifies the style to use in displaying their label-like elements.
  • Any style specification as used in Style can be used as a setting for LabelStyle.
  • Typical forms of settings include:
"style"a named style from the current stylesheets
{opt1->val1,...}a list of explicit option settings
{"style",opt1->val1,...}a named style modified by option settings
  • Color directives such as Red, as well as text specifications such as Bold or Small, can be given in place of options, just as in Style.
  • Giving the option setting LabelStyle->spec is effectively equivalent to replacing the label-like elements of a formatting or related construct by Style.
  • Any outside styles not explicitly overridden by settings in LabelStyle will still be used.
