The code with interact still generate the same error in SageMath 9.6 in my computer than in 9.5 but this code in SageCell don't produce any error , why ?

when I type version() on sagecell I got:

'SageMath version 9.6, Release Date: 2022-05-15' same as mine.

def _(v=('vector', input_grid(1, 3, default=[[1,2,3]], to_value=lambda x: vector(flatten(x))))):

TypeError: unable to find a common ring for all elements

I would like to know if the problem comes from my installation on my PC, or if it comes from the sage-9.5.tar.gz file or something is missing in relation to the installation on sagecell.or if there is a missing import needed for library ?. Does anyone encounter or not encounter the error on their PC with 9.5 or 9.6 ?

Same problem here (9.7.beta5 sompiled from Git on Deban testing). But this :

def _(v=input_grid(1, 3, 
                   to_value=lambda x: vector(SR, flatten(x)),

works as expected using either Jupyter or Jupyterlab and on Sagecell.

One may note that Sagecell automatically adds an auto_update=False argument. (This button, BTW, avoids the constant update during edition of the values, as well the error messages occurring when a value isn't evalable during edition, and might be a valuable addition to your controls...).

This implies that the interact engines of Jupyter and Sagecell aren't identical, which could explain that the form def _((<somelabel>, <somecontrol>),...) is no longer accepted by Sage's Jupyter and Jupyterlab, while still being acceptable by Sagecell.

But I am anything but familiar with interacts ; a question on sage-support would be in order...

But there is still a little problem, example try to change 3 in -4, when you want to change a value you can copy past -4 directly in the grid,but if you want to change an input by deleting a value and then enter the new value then you get : SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing this problem is not present in SageCell (only on Jupyter notebook in SageMath 9.5 and 9.6 on my computer )
