Smarter smart labels for pie charts

Recommended Posts

We've upgraded from FusionCharts Free to FusionCharts v3 and one of the features I was really looking forward were smartlables for pie charts.




Unfortunately these still have several rendering problems as labels are still being cut off, even if they are not that big.


I really wouldn't mind if it would cut of labels, but it should add an ellipsis to the end keeping tooltip with the complete value.


I know I could do this in code, but it's not easy to calculate the trimming point (it should be dependent of the start of the smart label) and I would still like to show percentage and the full label in the tooltip. I've seen other posts explaining how to use the grid to create a legend but that's also not an option for us because we do not have enough screen real estate as this is being shown in a dashboard.




Your charts really look great and we love all the features, this is the only major issue we have with them.




Do you have any plans to fix this annoyance?




Thank you very much,


Tiago Sim

I am sorry, adding of ellipsis at the end of label text is not supported as of now.
Also, currently to get it work, you would need to increase the chart size, because FusionCharts reserves/uses minimum of 20% space from chartWidth/chartHeight to render the elements, otherwise smaller than this will make chart distorted.
