ChartDirector 6.0 (C++ Edition)

Donut Chart

This example demonstrates a donut chart with ring shading effects. It also demonstrates brushed metal background, rounded frame, customized sector labels and using CDML and Parameter Substitution and Formatting to format legend text.

    // Create a PieChart object of size 600 x 320 pixels. Set background color to brushed silver,
    // with a 2 pixel 3D border. Use rounded corners of 20 pixels radius.

    // Set the legend box margin to 16 pixels, and the extra line spacing between the legend entries
    // as 5 pixels

    // Set the legend text to show the sector number, followed by a 120 pixels wide block showing
    // the sector label, and a 40 pixels wide block showing the percentage
