Dataviz chart click events expose e.event.originalEvent
As per support ticket 806897

Telerik: "By design both seriesClick and plotAreaClick events of Kendo UI Chart  don't contain information about the clicked button or mouse coordinates. We will appreciate it if you submit this idea as a feature request at our UserVoice portal - this way the community would be able to evaluate it and if the suggestion gains popularity we will consider its implementation for future releases."

Original request:

We are using mvvm binding to your Chart events


both of these events I am unable to determine which mouse button caused the click.

Is is possible or should I raise a user-voice for this?

I want to run different code if the user right-clicked or if the user normal clicked on the chart.

I would also like to know the x,y pixel position of the mouse (or tap, or tap-hold) event because depending if they interact with the top of a bar chart bar or the bottom I want to run different code...

I cannot find any of this information in the event object.

When I wrap the chart in a data-role touch widget and use the touch widgets event handling I can get this information, but it would be better that the chart events make this available.

Being able to determine if a user right clicked or left clicked on a series or the plot area would be very valuable.  As Adrian pointed out, it can allow us to provide one type of functionality on left click and something like a context menu on a right click.
