VertexLabeling

VertexLabeling
is an option for GraphPlot and related functions which specifies whether labeling should be included by default for vertices in graphs.
  • VertexLabeling->True shows each vertex with its name given in a box.
  • VertexLabeling->False displays each vertex as a point.
  • VertexLabeling->Tooltip displays each vertex as a point, but gives its name in a tooltip.
  • VertexLabeling->Automatic displays each vertex as a point, giving its name in a tooltip if the number of vertices is not too large.
  • VertexLabeling->All displays the name of each vertex both explicitly and in a tooltip.

Show vertex labeling both as labels and as tooltips:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
Show vertex labeling as tooltips only if the graph is small:
