How to remove extra space in Pie chart?


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

My code has following lines to generate the Pie chart. I set all gaps to 0.

Still, the chart has extra space on its all sides (i.e. top, bottom, left &

right).

How to get rid of this extra space?

Thanks.

myGraph.AllowEdit = False

myGraph.Chart3D = False

myGraph.Gallery = ChartFX.Gallery.Pie

myGraph.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White

myGraph.Palette = "Default.ChartFX6"

myGraph.Border = True

myGraph.BorderStyle = ChartFX.BorderType.None

myGraph.AxesStyle = ChartFX.AxesStyle.None

myGraph.OpenData(ChartFX.COD.Values, 1, 2)

myGraph.Value(0, 0) = CType(BigInUse, Double)

myGraph.Value(0, 1) = CType(BigTotal - BigInUse, Double)

myGraph.CloseData(ChartFX.COD.Values)

Dim myPie As SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.GalleryObj.Pie =

myGraph.GalleryObj

myPie.ExplodingMode =

SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.GalleryObj.ExplodingMode.Last

myPie.SliceSeparation = 20

myGraph.LeftGap = 0

myGraph.RightGap = 0

myGraph.TopGap = 0

myGraph.BottomGap = 0

A few things:

1) Zero (0) in the gaps means "auto", assign 1 for minimum gap

2) The volume property also affects the size of the Pie chart as a

percentage of the total space

4) The Pie chart is circular (same with and height) while the chart area may

be rectangular.

To obtain the maximum Pie size:

chart.LeftGap = 1;

chart.TopGap = 1;

chart.RightGap = 1;

chart.BottomGap = 1;

chart.Volume = 100;

In a pie chart, where the legend box visiblity is set to false, it display the lables near the pie which is good. There is a line which points the lable to slice of pie. Can we remove those lines?

 Can we have the label text wrap?

Hi,

I am not sure about which line you want to get rid of. Could you please post a screenshot showing this line?

In regard to your second question, unfortunately, there is no built-in feature to enable label-wrapping. However, as a workaround you can specify a line break (\n) when defining a value for the text property of the point class:

Chart1.AllSeries.PointLabels.Format = "%L";Chart1.Points[0, 0].Text = "Line1 \n Line 2";

Regards,

RandyJ
