represents a hyperlink that jumps to the specified URI when clicked.
Hyperlink[label, uri]
represents a hyperlink to be displayed as label.
  • The following forms of URIs can be used:
"string"a URI such as ""
{"file.nb",None}a complete local notebook file
{"file.nb","tag"}the first cell with the specified tag in a local notebook file
  • Local notebook files can be specified by relative paths such as "../file.nb". The base of the paths is taken to be the location of the notebook that contains the hyperlink.
  • Hyperlink can be used with graphics or any other expression.
  • Hyperlink objects can appear within graphics.
  • By default, Hyperlink renders label in "Hyperlink" style.
  • When the mouse is over label, it is by default rendered in "HyperlinkActive" style.
  • Supported URI types include http, file, ftp, mailto.
  • Hyperlinks of different types are handled as follows:
notebook file URIopen in current Mathematica session
non-notebook file URIopen through operating system
non-file URIopen in a web browser
  • In a standard notebook front end, hyperlinks can be inserted using the Hyperlink item in the Insert menu.
  • Ctrl or Command clicking a hyperlink will always open a new notebook window, even if an existing window could have been used.
