 HighlightVertex
 highlight a vertex of a graph Calling Sequence HighlightVertex(G, V) HighlightVertex(G, V, C, ip) HighlightVertex(G, V, stylesheet=[ optionsequence ], ip ) Parameters

 G - graph V - a single vertex or a list, set, or Array of vertices of G C - (optional) color or list of colors ip - (optional) equation of the form inplace = true or inplace = false stylesheet - (optional) optionsequence is a sequence of keyword options to specify the style or a list of such sequences. Description

 • By default the DrawGraph command draws the edges and vertices of the graph with the same set of style options. HighlightVertex allows you to specify vertices to be given a different highlighted style specified in the graph stylesheet.
 • Given only a graph G and a vertex or vertices V, HighlightVertex marks the specified vertices to be rendered with the default highlighted style.
 • If you simply want a vertex to have a different style without being grouped with other highlighted graph components, use the command StyleVertex instead.
 • If you want to highlight a vertex but give it a different color, the simplest way it to just specify C, the color for the vertex. The colors C can be given in any form understood by Maple. See ColorTools/Formats for details. When the color of the vertex is set, the color of the vertex label is set automatically to an appropriately contrasting grayscale.
 • If V is a list or Array of vertices, then a list of colors or stylesheets is used to associate a different color or style to each member.
 • By default, this command modifies G and returns nothing. If you supply the option inplace = false, then instead the changes are applied to a copy of G, and that copy is returned.
 • More precise overriding of the default highlighted style can be set using stylesheet options. The stylesheet options are understood as modifiers to the default highlighted style. So, for example, if a color is not specified, the default highlighted color is used. If the stylesheet option and a color C are both given, the color C is ignored.  See StyleVertex for a complete list of vertex style options. Examples
