I'm attempting to the same thing with the current version Q2 2012 (I'm using the MVC version but this shouldn't be specific to that) - the example code referenced in this thread:
"event :: select ("
+ dataItem +
doesn't actually work. e.item doesn't exist. I have a template - when I select an item, my event fires. But accessing the "e.item" parameter fails.
How do I get access to this object?
Actually, I'm kind of surprised that it doesn't just pass the selected object as a parameter to the event - it seems like this is a pretty common requirement (and based on the # of views of this thread, it's probably safe to say it is).
EDIT: Apparently I was binding to the wrong event. I was binding to Change instead of Select.
