Add client-side OnHover event for the RadDiagram shapes and connections
Raise OnHover event for the RadDiagram shapes and connections, giving the developer the ability to access the object that is hovered (get reference to it).

RadDiagram exposes OnMouseEnter and OnMouseLeave events, which can be used to track the hovering over a shape or connector:

woot! all right... once OnHover is implemented for both Shapes and Connections we will really be able to create some great interactive diagrams representing real-world infrastructure w/ real-time data! thanks!

Hello, again. In speaking w/ staff on this issue very recently, we were told that OnHover is not on the drawing board. Worse, the way we were able to implement this ourselves (using JQuery and client-side ID attributes) is no longer possible because IDs have been removed from client-side. So now it is not possible to implement Shape/Connection hover actions. This is a terrible decision -- on-hover is a very old, very standard, very customary way of interacting w/ on-screen UI elements. Without it, it's impossible to, say, change the color of an element, or present a RadToolTip, when the user mouses over it. How can we build feature-rich, interactive apps for enterprise if we can’t even hover over a Shape/Connection? More, this doesn’t follow suit w/ the event model in all the other RadControls – the other UI controls support OnHover in client-side, such as the RadGrid. Can you imagine the RadGrid not having the ability to do OnHover?

This control very badly needs the ability to do both OnClick and OnHover for Shapes & Connections. Otherwise it's just a toy and cannot be used in serious enterprises applications.

OnHover and OnClick for both shapes and connections is the next logical step -- this will allow us to build feature-rich, interactive apps around RadDiagrams.
