Currently it is not possible to have access to the DataItem from the label template. I have discussed this with our developers and we think that it will be of great help to have access to both the value and the data item. This is why I have logged this as a feature request here in our PITS
where you can vote for the feature and track its status.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. I have updated your Telerik points as a thank you for pointing this issue to us and helping us improve our products.
