Pie / Bar chart legend values


Recommended Posts

How do I set the name of the points in a given series for a pie / bar chart?

I have the following code that generates a very simple 10 slice pie chart:

public Chart PieChart(){   Chart chart = new Chart();   chart.Gallery = Gallery.Pie;   SeriesAttributes series = new SeriesAttributes();   series.Gallery = Gallery.Pie;   chart.Series.Add(series);   for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)   chart.Data[0, i-1] = new DataUnit(i);   return chart;}

How do I make the legend display values of my choosing for the slice names rather than "Point 1," "Point 2," "Point 3" etc ... ?

For example, I want the legend to display "A," "B," and "C" instead.

Thank you,

In a pie chart we use the collection of X axis labels, please also note that DataUnit has implicit converters for doubles and dates so you do not need to manually create them.

LabelCollection axisLabels = chart.AxisX.Labels.Items;

for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++) {

  chart.Data[0, i - 1] = i;

  axisLabels[i - 1] =

"P" + i.ToString();
