    I have a bar chart for which I wish to show the pointer (hand) cursor when hovering over the bars on the chart.  When moving off the bars in the chart the cursor should return to the standard arrow pointer.  I noticed that the cursor turned into the text cursor when hovering over the axis labels (left, right, and bottom) and on the legend.  So in addition to the above I would like the cursor to remain the standard cursor (arrow) when hovering over the axis labels and legend (since you cannot edit these).  I would also like the cursor to switch to the pointer cursor when hovering over the x-axis (bottom) labels.  

    I can easily show a pointer cursor for the entire chart when hovering anywhere over the chart but that is NOT desired.

    I have tried various strategies using the seriesHover event but so far nothing has worked. 

    How do I achieve the above?

    Thanks,

    Addie

    PS -- The reason for showing the pointer cursor for the bars and the x-axis label is to clue the user in that he can click on this area to show and additional "driill-down" chart when the particular bar or x-axis label is clicked.  If there is an alternative way to clue the user in then that may be acceptable as well.

    Hello Addie,

    I am afraid that what you would like to achieve is currently not supported. 
    I would suggest you to share your idea at KendoUI uservoice forum. In this way we would be able to monitor the community interest in such feature. If more people vote for it and it gains popularity we will consider it for one of our future releases.

    Kind regards,
