I draw some diagram in Visio Services and map shape data with data from sharepoint list. One of fields is hyperlink. When I view toggle shape information, I can see my hyperlink, but when I try to click them - I see strange URL like "http://mylink,http://mylink" (if I have no link description in list), or "http://mylink,description" (if have). Both of links are not correct. I've try to found solutuion and've found the same question here:, but that doesn't helps.

Could anyone please help to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

The javascript can be dropped onto the page using a Content Editor web part. Hope this helps?
