displaystyle

The displaystyle global attribute is a boolean setting the math-style of a MathML element.

Example

In this example, an munder element is used to attach a script "A" to a base "∑". By default, the summation symbol is rendered with the font-size inherited from its parent and the A as a scaled down subscript. With the explicit displaystyle="true" attribute, the summation symbol is instead drawn bigger and the "A" becomes an underscript.

<math>
  <munder>
    <mo></mo>
    <mi>A</mi>
  </munder>
  <munder displaystyle="true">
    <mo></mo>
    <mi>A</mi>
  </munder>
</math>

Syntax

<math displaystyle="true">
<math displaystyle="false">

Values

true

Sets the display style to normal.

false

Sets the display style to compact.
