Bug introduced in 9.0 or earlier and fixed in 10.0

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, "http://stackexchange.com/"]}]

Did I miss something ?

    $\begingroup$ I have to evaluate the Output to make it work: see here. Windows7 V9.01. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ 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 ? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Same issue with Graph[{Property[1, Tooltip -> "Test"], Property[2, Hyperlink -> "http://stackexchange.com/"]}, {1 \[DirectedEdge] 2, 2 \[DirectedEdge] 3}] using V9.0.1 on Windows 7. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ Apr 17, 2014 at 19:58

This works correctly in version 10.0 and later.
