ChartDirector 6.0 (C++ Edition)

3D Depth


This example demonstrates the effects of different 3D depths.

ChartDirector allows the 3D depth and angles to be configured using PieChart.set3D and PieChart.set3D2.

    // Set the center of the pie at (50, 55) and the radius to 38 pixels
    c->setPieSize(50, 55, 38);

    // Set the depth of the 3D pie

    // Add a title showing the depth
    sprintf(buffer, "Depth = %d pixels", depth);
    c->addTitle(buffer, "arial.ttf", 8);

    // Set the pie data
    c->setData(DoubleArray(data, (int)(sizeof(data) / sizeof(data[0]))));

    // Disable the sector labels by setting the color to Transparent
    c->setLabelStyle("", 8, Chart::Transparent);

    // Output the chart

    //free up resources
