ResponseForm[expr,"fmt"]

represents a response record to be given in a specified format when requested during the execution of a function specified by APIFunction, FormFunction, etc.

ResponseForm[expr,"fmt",{"elem1","elem2",}]

includes only the response record elements elemi.

    "Success"whether the evaluation is considered successful
  • Typical formats include:
  • Nonegive a response containing only the result
