Pie Chart

Expanded Short Description

The Pie Chart is represented by the PieSeriesView object, which belongs to Pie, Doughnut and Funnel Series Views. This view is useful when it's necessary to compare the percentage values of different point arguments in the same series, and to illustrate these values as easy to understand pie slices.

A Pie chart is shown in the image below. Note that if a chart contains several series of the PieSeriesView type, all these series are displayed in the same diagram according to the SimpleDiagram.Dimension and SimpleDiagram.LayoutDirection property values.

Expanded Chart Type Characteristics

The table below lists the main characteristics of this chart type.

Feature

Series View type PieSeriesView

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1189.

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the PieSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime.

Note that this series view type is associated with the SimpleDiagram type, and you should cast your diagram object to this type, in order to access its specific options.
