Detailed Description

The QPieSlice class represents a single slice in a pie series.

A pie slice has a value and a label. When the slice is added to a pie series, the QPieSeries object calculates the percentage of the slice compared with the sum of all slices in the series to determine the actual size of the slice in the chart.

By default, the label is hidden. If it is visible, it can be either located outside the slice and connected to it with an arm or centered inside the slice either horizontally or in parallel with the tangential or normal of the slice's arc.

By default, the visual appearance of the slice is set by a theme, but the theme can be overridden by specifying slice properties. However, if the theme is changed after the slices are customized, all customization will be lost.

To enable user interaction with the pie chart, some basic signals are emitted when users click pie slices or hover the mouse over them.

Member Type Documentation

enum QPieSlice::LabelPosition

This enum describes the position of the slice label.

ConstantValueDescription
QPieSlice::LabelOutside0The label is located outside the slice connected to it with an arm. This is the default value.
QPieSlice::LabelInsideHorizontal1The label is centered within the slice and laid out horizontally.
QPieSlice::LabelInsideTangential2The label is centered within the slice and rotated to be parallel with the tangential of the slice's arc.
QPieSlice::LabelInsideNormal3The label is centered within the slice and rotated to be parallel with the normal of the slice's arc.

Property Documentation

angleSpan : const qreal

This property holds the span of the slice in degrees. A full pie is 360 degrees, where 0 degrees is at 12 a'clock. Updated automatically once the slice is added to the series.

QColor borderColor()
void setBorderColor(QColor color)

Notifier signal:

See also pen and borderWidth.

borderWidth : int

This property holds the width of the slice border. This is a convenience property for modifying the slice pen.

Access functions:

QColor color()
void setColor(QColor color)

Notifier signal:

void colorChanged()

See also brush.

explodeDistanceFactor : qreal

Determines how far away from the pie the slice is exploded.

  • 1.0 means that the distance is the same as the radius.
  • 0.5 means that the distance is half of the radius.

By default, the distance is 0.15

Access functions:

qreal explodeDistanceFactor() const

label : QString

This property holds the label of the slice.

QString label() const
void setLabel(QString label)

Notifier signal:

void labelChanged()

See also labelVisible, labelBrush, labelFont, and labelArmLengthFactor.

labelArmLengthFactor : qreal

This property holds the length of the label arm. The factor is relative to the pie radius. For example:

  • 1.0 means that the length is the same as the radius.
  • 0.5 means that the length is half of the radius.

By default, the arm length is 0.15

Access functions:

qreal labelArmLengthFactor() const
void setLabelArmLengthFactor(qreal factor)

See also label, labelVisible, labelBrush, and labelFont.

labelBrush : QBrush

void setLabelBrush(const QBrush &brush)

Notifier signal:

See also label, labelVisible, labelFont, and labelArmLengthFactor.

labelColor : QColor

void setLabelColor(QColor color)

Notifier signal:

See also labelBrush.

labelFont : QFont

This property holds the font used for drawing the label text.

Access functions:

QFont labelFont() const
void setLabelFont(const QFont &font)

Notifier signal:

See also label, labelVisible, and labelArmLengthFactor.

labelPosition : LabelPosition

This property holds the position of the slice label.

Access functions:

LabelPosition labelPosition()
void setLabelPosition(LabelPosition position)

See also label and labelVisible.

labelVisible : bool

This property holds the visibility of the slice label. By default, the label is not visible.

Access functions:

bool isLabelVisible() const
void setLabelVisible(bool visible = true)

Notifier signal:

See also label, labelBrush, labelFont, and labelArmLengthFactor.

pen : QPen

This property holds the pen used to draw the slice border.

Access functions:

QPen pen() const
void setPen(const QPen &pen)

Notifier signal:

void penChanged()

percentage : const qreal

This property holds the percentage of the slice compared to the sum of all slices in the series. The actual value ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. Updated automatically once the slice is added to the series.

Access functions:

qreal percentage() const

Notifier signal:

See also value and QPieSeries::sum.

startAngle : const qreal

This property holds the starting angle of this slice in the series it belongs to. A full pie is 360 degrees, where 0 degrees is at 12 a'clock. Updated automatically once the slice is added to the series.
