is an option and property for Graph and related functions that specifies the style to use for edge labels.


  • Any style specification as used in Style can be used as a setting for EdgeLabelStyle.
  • Typical forms of settings include:
  • Automaticuse automatic setting
    styleuse style for all edges
    {e1->style1,e2->style2,}use stylei for edge ei
    {pattistylei,}use stylei for edges matching the pattern patti
  • Color directives such as Red, as well as text specifications such as Bold or Small, can be given.
  • Giving the option setting EdgeLabelStyle->style is effectively equivalent to replacing the label-like elements of a formatting or related construct by Style[label,style].
