Represents a collection of exploded series points within a Pie Chart.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class ExplodedSeriesPointCollection :

The following members return ExplodedSeriesPointCollection objects:


The ExplodedSeriesPointCollection represents a collection of SeriesPoint objects, which are exploded in the current Pie chart. The properties and methods declared by this class can be used to perform common collection operations such as adding new or deleting existing items. Individual items can be accessed using indexer notation.

An instance of the ExplodedSeriesPointCollection class can be accessed via the PieSeriesViewBase.ExplodedPoints property of the PieSeriesViewBase object.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the Pie3DSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary 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;
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create an empty chart.
    ChartControl PieChart3D = new ChartControl();

    // Create a pie series.
    Series series1 = new Series("Pie Series 1", ViewType.Pie3D);

    // 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.

    // Adjust the value numeric options of the series.
    series1.PointOptions.ValueNumericOptions.Format = NumericFormat.Percent;
    series1.PointOptions.ValueNumericOptions.Precision = 0;

    // Adjust the view-type-specific options of the series.
    ((Pie3DSeriesView)series1.View).Depth = 30;
    ((Pie3DSeriesView)series1.View).ExplodedDistancePercentage = 30;

    // Access the diagram's options.
    ((SimpleDiagram3D)PieChart3D.Diagram).RotationType = RotationType.UseAngles;
    ((SimpleDiagram3D)PieChart3D.Diagram).RotationAngleX = -35;

    // Add a title to the chart and hide the legend.
    ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
    chartTitle1.Text = "3D Pie Chart";
    PieChart3D.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    PieChart3D.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
