ASP.NET MVC Pie Chart Sample using CanvasJS

Here is an example for adding Interactive Pie Charts into your ASP.NET MVC Application using CanvasJS. Pie Chart renders itself with a beautiful animation. It allows you customize various properties like color of individual slices, label content and its position, starting angle, etc.

Please refer to this tutorial for step by step instruction of adding charts to your ASP.Net MVC Application. We recommend that you download the Sample Visual Studio Project and try it on your own to understand the API better.

var chart = new CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer", {
data: [{
    type: "pie",
    dataPoints: [
        { y: 6, label: "Apple" },
	{ y: 4, label: "Mango" },
	{ y: 5, label: "Orange" },

You can further customize these charts to enable features like Zooming, Panning, Exporting, etc. To know more about the available features, please refer to our getting started section.
