public LayoutDirection LayoutDirection { get; set; }
Public Property LayoutDirection As LayoutDirection

Property Value

Type Description

A LayoutDirection enumeration value.


The LayoutDirection property can be used with the SimpleDiagram2D.Dimension property to adjust the layout of more than one pie chart within a diagram. Depending upon the LayoutDirection property's value, pie charts are positioned in lines either horizontally (by rows) or vertically (by columns). The SimpleDiagram2D.Dimension property specifies how many pie charts can be displayed within one row or column.

The following images shows the LayoutDirection property in action:

Property Value Example
LayoutDirection = "Vertical"
(Dimension = "3")
LayoutDirection = "Horizontal"
(Dimension = "3")

Note that a pie chart(s) that is displayed within an incomplete row or column automatically changes its size to attempt to occupy all the available free space.


This example shows how to use the SimpleDiagram2D.LayoutDirection and SimpleDiagram2D.Dimension properties to arrange multiple pies within a simple diagram.
