Change the Pointer Cursor When Hovering a Shape or Connection in the Diagram

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Diagram

Description

I want to provide the user with the impression that the Diagram is not clickable.

How can I keep the default cursor when the user hovers over a shape or a connection in the Diagram?

Solution

Use either of the following approaches:

To prevent user interaction and display the widget as a static image, in the configuration of the Diagram set editable: false and selectable: false.

Change the Cursor Dynamically

To dynamically change the cursor when a series or a connection is hovered: 1. Add a mouseEnter event handler. 1. Change the cursor of the hovered element.

Change the Cursor When the Diagram Is Bound

Access all shapes and connections in the dataBound event of the Diagram and change their cursor.
