PieExplodeMode Enum

Lists the values used to specify the conditions to meet for a series to be represented as a spread apart pie slice(s).

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v20.1.dll

Declaration

[ResourceFinder(typeof(XtraChartsResFinder), "PropertyNamesRes")]
public enum PieExplodeMode
<ResourceFinder(GetType(XtraChartsResFinder), "PropertyNamesRes")>
Public Enum PieExplodeMode

Members

Name Description
None

No pie slices are exploded.

All

All pie slices are exploded.

MinValue

A pie slice for the series point with the minimum value (represented as the first item in a series point's SeriesPoint.Values collection) is exploded. If there are several pie slices with the same minimum value, all of them are exploded.

MaxValue

A pie slice for the series point with the maximum value (represented as the first item in a series point's SeriesPoint.Values collection) is exploded. If there are several pie slices with the same maximum value, all of them are exploded.

UsePoints

Pie slices to be exploded are contained in the collection of series points returned by the PieSeriesViewBase.ExplodedPoints property.

UseFilters

Pie slices to be exploded are specified via the collection of filters returned by the PieSeriesViewBase.ExplodedPointsFilters property.

Others

A pie slice showing the Others category is exploded. Note that this category is displayed if the TopNOptions.Enabled and the TopNOptions.ShowOthers properties are set to true.

Remarks

The values listed by the PieExplodeMode enumeration are used to set the PieSeriesViewBase.ExplodeMode property.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the PieSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime.

Note that this series view type is associated with the SimpleDiagram type, and you should cast your diagram object to this type, in order to access its specific options.
