# Boxed equation with empheq: adding text outside box

I'm trying to have a box around my align environment, so I do the following:

\usepackage{empheq}
\begin{empheq}[box=\fbox]{align}
equations
\end{empheq}


This works fine, but I would like to have above the box text as some kind of title for the box.

So I try

 \newcommand*\textfbox[2][Title]{
\begin{center}
\text{#2}
\end{center}
\fbox{#1}
}


And then replace box=\fbox with box={\textfbox{the title that I want}}. This does not work, it places the text next to the box and not above the box, so I have tried inserting \par or \newline but to no avail.

It is good that you included some code. Even better would be minimal working examples---chunks of code complete in themselves that can be copied and compiled and that manifest your issue. –  vanden May 12 '11 at 16:19
First, it should be box=\textfbox{The title you want} note the lack of backslash and the curly braces around your argument... –  Seamus May 12 '11 at 16:20
Thanks, I have modified it. –  Jonas Teuwen May 12 '11 at 16:26
T I edited the title to make it reflect the more specifc problem you are having. –  Seamus May 12 '11 at 16:26

You are using in a wrong way the parameters, first of all: #1 refers to the optional argument, #2 to the mandatory one. Moreover, there's no centering environment and the \centering command is useless here.

\newcommand*\textfbox[2][Title]{%
\begin{tabular}[b]{@{}c@{}}#1\\\fbox{#2}\end{tabular}}

\begin{empheq}[box={\textfbox[A different title]}]{align}
equations
\end{empheq}

Oh, I typed it because I don't have the original file with me now... Thanks. –  Jonas Teuwen May 12 '11 at 16:25
You've also forgot {align}, for the rest it is okay. –  Jonas Teuwen May 12 '11 at 16:31
Corrected, thanks. –  egreg May 12 '11 at 16:38
