ASP.net Can't see legend percentages on pie chart


I am using the code below to generate a pie chart. I used the following two lines to show the percentages on the chart but they don't appear
            series1.Label = "#PERCENT{P2}"
            series1.LegendText = "#VALX"

    Sub oChart3(ByVal oChartWidth As Integer, ByVal oChartHeight As Decimal, oRed As String, ByVal oGreen As Decimal, ByVal oAdd_To_Panel As Panel)
        ' Initialize the Chart object    
        Dim ChartGreen As New Chart()
        'ChartData.ID = "ChartData"
        ChartGreen.Width = oChartWidth
        ChartGreen.Height = oChartHeight
        ChartGreen.BorderSkin.SkinStyle = BorderSkinStyle.Raised

        Dim legend1 As New Legend()

        ' Set the Legend properties
        legend1.Name = "Default"
        legend1.Docking = Docking.Bottom
        legend1.LegendStyle = LegendStyle.Row
        legend1.Alignment = System.Drawing.StringAlignment.Center

        legend1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent
        legend1.BorderColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black
        legend1.BorderWidth = 1
        ' Add the Legend to the Chart

        ' Initialize objects and elements
        Dim chartArea1 As New ChartArea()
        chartArea1.AxisX.Interval = 1

        chartArea1.Name = "ChartArea1"
        chartArea1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White

        'chartArea1.BackGradientStyle = GradientStyle.LeftRight

        'chartArea1.AxisX.LabelStyle.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Calibri", 0.5, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular)
        'chartArea1.AxisY.LabelStyle.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Calibri", 2, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular)


            Dim yValues As Double() = {oRed, oGreen}
            Dim xValues As String() = {"Green", "Delay"}

            Dim series1 As New Series()
            series1.Name = "Default"
            series1.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie
            series1.BorderWidth = 1
            'following two lines used to change series line colors....
            series1.EmptyPointStyle.Color = Drawing.Color.Transparent
            series1.Color = Drawing.Color.DarkGreen


            series1.Points.DataBindXY(xValues, yValues)

            series1.Points(0).Color = System.Drawing.Color.MediumSeaGreen
            series1.Points(1).Color = System.Drawing.Color.Red

            series1.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.DarkTurquoise
            series1.BackGradientStyle = GradientStyle.LeftRight

            series1.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie

            series1.Label = "#PERCENT{P2}"
            series1.LegendText = "#VALX"

            series1("PieLabelStyle") = "Disabled"

            ChartGreen.ChartAreas("ChartArea1").Area3DStyle.Enable3D = True

            ChartGreen.Legends(0).Enabled = True

        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
