    I would like to create an Outlook 2013 style "pee" for a SharePoint task list.
    Here is an image with the basic style I am after:

    The "peek menu" would allow the user to complete the task or change the due date. I am not certain if the Window or Tooltip control would be better suited for this. Is there any guidance for when I might wish to use one over the other?

    Hello Robert,

    Basically you can achieve the desired behavior with both widgets, but the Tooltip is probably more suitable for two reasons:

    1. It will position itself at the correct location automatically
    2. It has an arrow that can point to the opening target

    The autoHide property should be set to false.

    Thanks, Dimo. I kind of figured that would be your adivce.

    Following the examples I got it working and it really looks nice. Thanks to the Kendo team for all your hard work!
