DoughnutSeriesView Class

Represents a series view of the Doughnut type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class DoughnutSeriesView :


The DoughnutSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the Doughnut type within a chart control.

In addition to the common view settings inherited from the base PieSeriesView class, the DoughnutSeriesView class declares the Doughnut type specific settings that allow you to define a percentage value for a hole radius (DoughnutSeriesView.HoleRadiusPercent).

Note that a particular view type can be defined for a series via its SeriesBase.View property.

For more information on series views of the pie type, please see the Doughnut Chart topic.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the DoughnutSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and add all required assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;

namespace Series_DoughnutChart {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1() {

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
            // Create a new chart.
            ChartControl DoughnutChart = new ChartControl();

            // Create a doughnut series.
            Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.Doughnut);

            // Populate the series with points.
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Russia", 17.0752));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Canada", 9.98467));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("USA", 9.63142));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("China", 9.59696));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Brazil", 8.511965));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Australia", 7.68685));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("India", 3.28759));
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("Others", 81.2));

            // Add the series to the chart.

            // Specify the text pattern of series labels.
            series1.Label.TextPattern = "{A}: {VP:P0}";

            // Specify how series points are sorted.
            series1.SeriesPointsSorting = SortingMode.Ascending;
            series1.SeriesPointsSortingKey = SeriesPointKey.Argument;

            // Specify the behavior of series labels.
            ((DoughnutSeriesLabel)series1.Label).Position = PieSeriesLabelPosition.TwoColumns;
            ((DoughnutSeriesLabel)series1.Label).ResolveOverlappingMode = ResolveOverlappingMode.Default;
            ((DoughnutSeriesLabel)series1.Label).ResolveOverlappingMinIndent = 5;

            // Adjust the view-type-specific options of the series.
            ((DoughnutSeriesView)series1.View).ExplodedDistancePercentage = 30;

            // Access the diagram's options.
            ((SimpleDiagram)DoughnutChart.Diagram).Dimension = 2;

            // Add a title to the chart and hide the legend.
            ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
            chartTitle1.Text = "2D Doughnut Chart";
            DoughnutChart.Legend.Visibility = DevExpress.Utils.DefaultBoolean.False;

            // Add the chart to the form.
            DoughnutChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
