What's the best way to position something relative to another element? I have a pie graph and want to position tooltips relative to their respective slices. If I have slices "sliceA, sliceB, etc" and want to position "tooltipA, tooltipB, etc" relative to their respective slices, how would you go about positioning the tooltips to appear relative to their slices? Trying to be as DRY as possible with this.. Thanks for sharing your approach!

I would use layer.screenFrame which gives you the current absolute position on screen.

You could also make the pie pieces the superLayer of the popup
