I would like to label vertices of a graph with an ordered pair of the vertex Name (or Index), and the VertexWeight. This seems natural:

g = Graph[{1 <-> 2, 2 <-> 3, 3 <-> 1}, VertexWeight -> {102, 103, 104},
  VertexLabels -> "Name"];
 VertexLabels -> 
  Table[i -> {i, PropertyValue[{g, i}, VertexWeight]}, {i, 3}]]

But it overprints the vertex name and the vertex weight:

enter image description here
If I use instead i/PropertyValue[{g, i}, VertexWeight] I get a nice display as fractions $\frac{1}{102}$ etc., but if there is cancellation this fails.

The documentation says

Any expression can be used as a label.

so I should be able to accomplish this...

1 Answer 1

SetProperty[g, {VertexLabels -> 
   Table[i -> Placed[{i, PropertyValue[{g, i}, VertexWeight]}, {Above, Below}], {i, 3}], 
  ImagePadding -> 20}]

or, slightly shorter,

 SetProperty[g, {VertexLabels -> 
  {v_:> Placed[{"Name", PropertyValue[{g, v}, VertexWeight]}, {Above, Below}]},
  ImagePadding -> 20}]

both give
