Displaying numbers ON the pie chart

Postby happybuddha » Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:51 am

Hello,

I have searched extensively on the net for this but wasnt lucky.
I need to display a pie chart (which I will be emailing later, although at the moment I have no idea how I am gonna render the pie chart in my email processor) with values ON the chart. For ex, if its a pie chart displaying the gender of the population of a city. In a simple pie chart with three different colors I need to be able to show Male X% Female Y% Others Z%.
If you could please help/guide me or help me point to a direction, Id be grateful.

cheers..

Use this:

Code: Select all
PiePlot plot = (PiePlot) chart.getPlot();
plot.setSimpleLabels(true);
