    I've dug through every readily available example (that I can find) of the UI for MVC Diagram, and can't find any way to show or display the "Text" attribute of a Connection. I'm seeing that the "Text" member is correctly being passed from controller to view (and is editable to boot), but don't see any way to display it on the view. Is this at all possible with the Diagram control for MVC?

    Here is a simple example of how to put a text of the connection:

    and the code itself:

    <div id="diagram"></div>
        var Point = kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point;
        var diagram = $("#diagram").kendoDiagram({ }).getKendoDiagram();
        var shapeA = diagram.addShape(new Point(100, 100));
        var shapeB = diagram.addShape(new Point(400, 100));
        var connection = diagram.connect(shapeA, shapeB, {
            stroke: { color: "red" },
            hover: {
                stroke: {
                    color: "blue"
          content:{text: "Hello"}

    Also, you could look slo at the API reference at: where it pointed:

    content.text String

    The static text displayed on the connection.

    I hope that will help.
