In the documentation of Mathematica it is mentioned that you can use Hyperlink and Tooltip as wrapper in a similar manner as Style. However, the following example does not seem to work: vertices 1 and 2 are highlighted in Red but there is neither hyperlink access nor tip.

HighlightGraph[Graph[{1 -> 2, 2 -> 3}], {Tooltip[1, "TEST IT!"], 
                 Hyperlink[2, ""]}]

Did I miss something ?

I have to evaluate the Output to make it work: see here. Windows7 V9.01. – Öskå Apr 17 '14 at 15:03
Thank you. However in your demo, you have validated the output of the code line to enable the hyperlink, and effectively it works. I don't understand why two validations are required ? – Gurwho Apr 17 '14 at 18:06
More comments should come with more feedback :) – Öskå Apr 17 '14 at 18:53
Same issue with Graph[{Property[1, Tooltip -> "Test"], Property[2, Hyperlink -> ""]}, {1 \[DirectedEdge] 2, 2 \[DirectedEdge] 3}] using V9.0.1 on Windows 7. – kglr Apr 17 '14 at 19:12
I'm prepared to call this a bug. BTW It is an interesting exercise to open up the original graph output and Öskå's version (the evaluated graph) using ctrl-shift-E and look for the differences. – Sjoerd C. de Vries Apr 17 '14 at 19:58
