When rolling over a map, the call-out box displays a hyperlink that users can click on for more information.
Example: a point layer of city hall locations that are colored according to whether they do or don't have policies promoting walkable communities. As the user rolls over a city hall location, not only the name or subject of the policy appears, but a hyperlink that, if clicked on, will lead to a description of the policy or even the full text of the local resolution or ordinance. The user can then click on the hyperlink displayed to get the additional information

The tooltip disappears when the user moves the mouse, so a user would not be able to click on a hyperlink in the tooltip. Is this feature request implying that we should make the tooltip stay on the screen after clicking on a record? To be clear, I'm talking about a click event, not mouse-over event.

The behavior I am looking for is the probe box persisting if a user mouses over it, then if a field being probed contains a hyperlink, the user could click on it and be taken to a new web site with more information. We don't necessarily need a GUI for this behavior at first if we can enable it through writing a brief script. A GUI could come later if the feature ends up being useful to many.
