PIE): Performance: this is about the day-to-day work you’re tasked with and the quality of the results you deliver. Image: this is what other people think of you. Your personal brand. Do you maintain a positive attitude? Overview A pie chart is a circular chart looking like a pie divided into slices (sectors). Slices show the percentage each value contributes to a total, the area of each slice being proportional to the quantity it represents, and the circle representing 100%. A pie chart with a blank circular area in the center is called a doughnut chart.

Pie charts are used very widely with small sets of data to compare categories. They cannot be multiple-series and should not be used when there are more than just a few categories.

This article explains how to create a basic Pie chart as well as configure settings that are specific to the type. You can also see the table below to get a brief overview of the Pie chart's characteristics:

The Pie chart requires adding the Core and Pie and Doughnut modules:

Alternatively, you can use the Base module, which includes, among other things, the two modules mentioned above:

Quick Start

To create a Pie chart, use the anychart.pie() chart constructor, like in the following sample:

General Settings

In AnyChart there are many settings that are configured in the same way for all chart types, including the Pie chart (for example, legend and interactivity settings).

Read the overview of general settings: General Settings.

Special Settings



The appearance settings of slices can be configured in three states: normal, hover, and selected. Use the normal(), hovered(), and selected() methods.

Combine them with the following methods: Daz studio 32 bit.

  • fill() to set the fill
  • hatchFill() to set the hatch fill
  • stroke() to set the stroke

Also, you can use some other methods from anychart.core.StateSettings.

In the sample below, there a Pie chart with appearance settings configured:


Outlines are special elements for highlighting slices, looking like arcs around them.

By default, outlines are enabled only in the hover and selectedstates, but they can be enabled and configured in the normal state as well. To adjust them, use the normal(), hovered(), and selected() methods. Alternatively, you can use outline(), which affects all states at once.

Combine these methods with the following ones:

  • enabled() to enable/disable the outline
  • fill() to set the fill
  • offset() to set the offset
  • stroke() to set the stroke
  • width() to set the width

The easiest way to enable or disable outlines in all states is calling outline() with true or false as a parameter:

This sample shows a Pie chart with outlines configured:

Individual Points

It is possible to configure the appearance of each chart point individually - use extra data fields corresponding to the methods mentioned in the Slices and Outlines sections:

Aqua Style

There is a special visual setting available for the Pie chart - Aqua Style. To apply it, use the fill() method with the 'aquastyle' parameter:

Start Angle

You can set the angle where the first slice is placed - use the startAngle() method. The angle is 0° by default.

In the sample below, the start angle of the first chart is not configured, and for the second chart it is set to 90°:

Sorting Order

By default, slices are sorted in descending order according to their values. You can sort them in ascending order or disable sorting.

To set the sorting mode, call the sort() method with one of the parameters listed in anychart.enums.Sort:

  • 'desc' (default)
  • 'asc'
  • 'none'

Exploded Slices

By default, there are no spaces between the slices of a Pie chart, and when a user clicks on a slice, it 'explodes' moving away from the others. Usually, explosion indicates that a slice is selected.

You can set the range of explosion (in pixels or as a percentage) by using the explode() method in different states:

Be default slices explode by 7% when selected.

To make some slices exploded (selected) by default, call select() with an array of their indexes as a parameter:

Another way to select a slice is to add a special field to your data, which should be set as an object:

In this sample, there is a Pie chart with three slices selected by default and the explosion range set to 3% in selected state and to 1% when you move the mouse over them:


To set the radius of a Pie chart, call the radius() method and specify either a value or a percentage of the chart's bounds.

In the following sample, the radius of the first Pie chart is not configured, and the radius of the second one is set to 30%:

The innerRadius() method allows you to set the inner radius of a Pie chart (which is 0 by default), thus turning it into a Doughnut chart. Read more in the Doughnut Chart article.


Labels are text or image elements that can be placed anywhere on any chart (you can enable them on a whole series or in a single point). For text labels, font settings and text formatters are available.

Outer Labels

By default, labels are placed on the Pie chart. However, you can place them outside of the chart by using the position() method with the 'outside' parameter:

To configure connectors (the lines connecting labels with slices), call the connectorStroke() method:

Another setting available for outer labels is outsideLabelsCriticalAngle().

In this sample, there are outside labels with customized connectors:

A Tooltip is a text box displayed when a point on a chart is hovered over. There is a number of visual and other settings available: for example, you can edit the text by using font settings and text formatters, change the style of background, adjust the position of a tooltip, and so on.
