is an option that specifies the labels associated with the frame around a cell.


  • CellFrameLabels->{{left,right},{bottom,top}} specifies the labels to the left, right, bottom, and top of the cell frame, respectively. If None is given for a value, then no label will be shown.
  • Cell frame labels can be specified as strings or raw cell expressions.
  • CellFrameLabels->None is equivalent to giving a value of {{None,None},{None,None}}.
  • A cell frame label will display even if there is no cell frame. If the cell has no frame but a specified background color, the labels will appear outside of the cell's background rectangle.
  • The margin between the label and the cell's frame or background color is determined by CellFrameLabelMargins.
  • Cell frame labels are displayed using a style inherited from their parent cell.
