How can I keep the argument of TeXForm[Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]] from being evaluated?

This is what I am getting:

TeXForm[Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]]
2 \sqrt{x+1}

But I want:

\int_{0}^{\pi/2} 1/\sqrt{x+1}

    $\begingroup$ how about TeXForm[HoldForm@Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]]? $\endgroup$ – kglr Aug 28 '19 at 21:09
  • $\begingroup$ @kglr Works, thanks! $\endgroup$ – blabla Aug 28 '19 at 21:10
  • $\begingroup$ I suggest TeXForm[Defer @ Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], {x, 0, \[Pi]}]] to get the exact output form you say you want. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Aug 28 '19 at 22:23

Try HoldForm or Defer or Unevaluated:

TeXForm[HoldForm @ Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]]

\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{1+x}} \, dx

TeXForm[Defer @ Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]]

\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{1+x}} \, dx

TeXForm[Unevaluated @ Integrate[1/Sqrt[1 + x], x]]

\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{1+x}} \, dx

$\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{1+x}} \, dx$
