Generate Custom Text for Series Labels

  • 2 minutes to read

This example shows how to configure the pie series so that its labels display point values as thousands, millions or billions of dollars in the following way:

  • 1234 -> $1.234K
  • 123456789 -> $123.457M
  • 12345678901 -> $12.346B

PieSeriesLabelValues

View Example

  1. Create a class (LabelTextProvider) that implements the ISeriesLabelTextProvider interface.
  2. Implement the GetText method that returns a string for each label instance. A PieSeriesLabelValues object is an argument of this method when it is called for a pie series. Use the PieSeriesLabelValues.Value property to access series point values.
  3. Assign a LabelTextProvider object to the PieSeriesLabel.TextProvider property.
