Property Value

Type Description
LayoutDirection

A LayoutDirection enumeration value.

Available values:

Name Description
Horizontal

Specifies that pie charts are positioned horizontally (by rows) within a chart control’s diagram. The number of pie charts within a single row is specified by the diagram’s SimpleDiagram.Dimension property.

Vertical

Specifies that pie charts are positioned vertically (by columns) within a chart control’s diagram. The number of pie charts within a single column is specified by the diagram’s SimpleDiagram.Dimension property.

Remarks

The LayoutDirection property can be used together with the SimpleDiagram3D.Dimension property to adjust the layout of more than one 3D pie chart within a diagram. Depending upon the LayoutDirection property’s setting, pie charts are positioned in lines either horizontally (by rows) or vertically (by columns). The SimpleDiagram3D.Dimension property specifies how many pie charts can be displayed within one row or column.
