    I connected a kendo tooltip to my diagram with a filter of "g".  The tooltip is showing when hovering over a shape. I want the tooltip to be loaded from ajax, so I have added an event handler for requestStart of the tooltip.

    However, I cannot seem to access the dataItem of the shape in the requestStart event handler to get the id of the item.[0] appears to be the shape, but I can't seem to access the dataItem from it.

    Let me know if you want any sample code.

    Hi Justin,

    You should be able to access the shape JavaScript object by following a similar approach to the one used in this sample:
    Drag and Drop on Existing Shapes

    You can see the code in the DropTarget's drop event handler, where a Shape is obtained using event page coordinates. Once you have a reference to the Shape object, you can get the dataItem. If you have problems with accessing the needed values, you can send me a Dojo, where I can get to the point where you need to fire the request with parameters.
