# StatusArea display of message with hyperlink

just trying to label a hyperlink, using an example right from the documentation....

StatusArea[
"Makers of Mathematica"]


This should display "Makers of Mathematica" in the status area, but displays the URL instead.

Am I missing something here...? I'm using Mathematica 9 on a Mac.

Same on v8 linux, misleading documentation or bug? –  ssch Nov 5 '13 at 21:11
I don't want to say "bug", but it certainly works as advertised with anything else, I think the behavior of hyperlink is overriding the functionality of StatusArea. Oh well... I used "Labeled" instead... –  Tom De Vries Nov 5 '13 at 21:33

Hyperlink[StatusArea[Framed["Wolfram"], "Makers of Mathematica"], "http://www.wolfram.com"]
