Property Value

Type Description

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the Doughnut3DSeriesView 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 DoughnutChart3D = new ChartControl();

    // Create a doughnut series.
    Series series1 = new Series("Doughnut Series 1", ViewType.Doughnut3D);

    // 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 = 2;

    // Adjust the view-type-specific options of the series.
    ((Doughnut3DSeriesView)series1.View).HoleRadiusPercent = 30;

    // Access the diagram's options.
    ((SimpleDiagram3D)DoughnutChart3D.Diagram).RotationType = RotationType.UseAngles;
    ((SimpleDiagram3D)DoughnutChart3D.Diagram).RotationAngleX = -35;

    // Add a title to the chart and hide the legend.
    ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
    chartTitle1.Text = "3D Doughnut Chart";
    DoughnutChart3D.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    DoughnutChart3D.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
