Pie Chart and VB


Hi All,

Is anyone of you have any good example of drawing pie chart in VB? The pie chart would have different color for each category and hence the legend to describe the category.

Looking forward to your answer!

Hi,

Here is an example on using the MS Chart Control.

Here is a basic pie chart you can make using a picture box:


Just Load this code in to a new VB application, and make a new picture box that is a sqare.

Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim Total As Single
Dim ken As Single
Dim bill As Single
Dim fred As Single

bill = 6000
ken = 10000
fred = 7000

Total = bill + ken + fred

bill = bill / Total * 2 * 3.145926
ken = (ken + bill) / Total * 2 * 3.145926
fred = (ken + bill + fred) / Total * 2 * 3.145926


Picture1.Scale (-5, 5)-(5, -5)
Picture1.Circle (0, 0), 4
Picture1.Line (0, 0)-(4, 0)
Picture1.Line (0, 0)-(4 * Cos(bill), 4 * Sin(bill))
Picture1.Line (0, 0)-(4 * Cos(ken), 4 * Sin(ken))

End Sub

(thx to Jacamar for this)
