How to reduce size of the Piechart control?

Jul 5, 2013 at 4:41 PM
Hello, First thanks for such a nice charts. It really helps for my app.

Coming to my issue, i am having a requirement when I need to display chart for the selected item in grid view. So I need to display in small size. I tried setting Height and Width to minimum (Say 200,200). What i am seeing is the control is not rendering based on Height and Width. It is getting truncated.
Is there any way to render chart based on random Height nad Width? or Do I need to use any default Height and Width?

Thanks in advance.

the pie chart has a parameter "PieMinimalSize" which defines the minimal size of the piechart.
Set this value to "200.0" and the chart should be smaller. Search in the sample of the project for "PieMinimalSize" to see how to change it.

Or check the sample applications in this project. It should be easy.

  3. click on "View" button for any month.
  4. You will navigate to a another page.
    5, Now click back, you should see the crash.
FYI- now comment out pie chart code in "MonthlySummaryPage.xaml" and run the app with above steps. Crah will not happen.
