PivotCustomChartDataSourceDataEventArgs e) {
    if(e.ItemType == PivotChartItemType.RowItem) {
        if(e.FieldValueInfo.Field == fieldCategoryName) {
            e.Value = CategoryEncodeTable[e.FieldValueInfo.Value.ToString()];
        } else if(e.FieldValueInfo.Field == fieldProductName) {
            string product =  
            string category = 
            e.Value = product + '[' + category + ']';
    if(e.ItemType == PivotChartItemType.ColumnItem) {
        if(e.FieldValueInfo.ValueType == PivotGridValueType.GrandTotal) {
            e.Value = "Total Sales";
