PieSeries

This series is visualized on the screen as a circle constructed with separate pie slices representing each of the data points.

Declaratively defined series

You can use the following definition to display a simple PieSeries:

Example 1: Declaring an PieSeries in XAML

<telerik:RadPieChart Palette="Windows8">
    <telerik:RadPieChart.Series>
        <telerik:PieSeries>
            <telerik:PieSeries.DataPoints>
                <telerik:PieDataPoint Label="43.46%" Value="43.46"/>
                <telerik:PieDataPoint Label="27.53%" Value="27.53"/>
                <telerik:PieDataPoint Label="15.11%" Value="15.11"/>
                <telerik:PieDataPoint Label="10.35%" Value="10.35"/>
                <telerik:PieDataPoint Label="3.55%" Value="3.55"/>
            </telerik:PieSeries.DataPoints>
        </telerik:PieSeries>
    </telerik:RadPieChart.Series>
</telerik:RadPieChart>

Properties

  • ValueBinding: A property of type DataPointBinding that gets or sets the property path that determines the value of the data point.
  • AngleRange: A property of type DataPointBinding that gets or sets the property path that determines the category value of the data point.
  • RadiusFactor: A property of type double that gets or sets the radius factor used to calculate the radius of the visual series.
  • SelectedPointOffset: A property of type double that gets or sets the offset applied to a Telerik.Charting.PieDataPoint which is currently selected. This value is applied only if the point's OffsetFromCenter property is 0.
  • DefaultSliceStyle: A property of type Style that gets the style applied to every segment in the series.

Data Binding

You can use the ValueBinding property of the PieSeries to bind the DataPoints’ properties to the properties from your view models.

Example 2: Defining the view model

public class PlotInfo
{
    public double Value { get; set; }
}

//.......
this.DataContext = new ObservableCollection<PlotInfo>
{
    new PlotInfo() { Value = 43.46},
    //....
};

Example 3: Specify a PieSeries in XAML

<telerik:PieSeries ItemsSource="{Binding}" ValueBinding="PieValue" />

See the Create Data-Bound Chart for more information on data binding in the RadChartView suite.

Setting the Pie Radius

The radius of the pie can be set via the RadiusFactor property of the series. The property works in relative units between 0 and 1. Value of 0.3 means that the pie visual will take 30% of the chart's available space.

Setting the property to 1 means that the circle (pie) will take all the available space given from the chart control.

Setting the property to 0.5 means that the circle (pie) will take half of the available space given from the chart control.

Setting the property to a value bigger than 1 (ex: 1.4) will make the pie bigger than the available size.

The default value of the property is 0.85

Example 4: Setting RadiusFactor

<telerik:PieSeries RadiusFactor="0.4" />

Styling the Series

You can see how to style the series using different properties in the PieSeries section of the Customizing PieChart Series help article.

Additionally, you can use the Palette property of the chart to change the colors of the PieSeries on a global scale. You can find more information about this feature in the Palettes section in our help documentation.
