InterpretationFunction

InterpretationFunction

is an option for TemplateBox that specifies how the box is to be evaluated.

Details

  • InterpretationFunction takes a function that produces a box expression.
  • TemplateBox parameters are substituted into the function to create the box expression that is sent to the kernel when the box is evaluated.
  • The function must be specified as a simple pure function that does not require further evaluation to resolve.

The function must produce a valid box expression after substitution of its arguments:

Functions that require evaluation may not produce a valid result:
