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[label, spec].
  • Any outside styles not explicitly overridden by settings in LabelStyle will still be used.
  • LabelStyle is effectively applied after DefaultLabelStyle.
