Gets the DOM element that is hosting the control.

innerRadius

innerRadius: number

Gets or sets the size of the pie's inner radius.

The inner radius is measured as a fraction of the pie radius.

The default value for this property is zero, which creates a pie. Setting this property to values greater than zero creates pies with a hole in the middle, also known as doughnut charts.

The default value for this property is 0.

isAnimated

isAnimated: boolean

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to use animation when items are selected.

See also the selectedItemPosition and selectionMode properties.

The default value for this property is false.

isDisabled

isDisabled: boolean

Gets or sets a value that determines whether the control is disabled.

Disabled controls cannot get mouse or keyboard events.

isTouching

isTouching: boolean

Gets a value that indicates whether the control is currently handling a touch event.

isUpdating

isUpdating: boolean

Gets a value that indicates whether the control is currently being updated.

itemFormatter

itemFormatter: Function

Gets or sets the item formatter function that allows you to customize the appearance of the chart elements.

If specified, the function should take three parameters: the chart's IRenderEngine responsible for rendering elements on the chart, a HitTestInfo parameter that describes the element being rendered, and a function that provides the default rendering for the item.

For example:

itemFormatter: function (engine, hitTestInfo, defaultRenderer) {
  var ht = hitTestInfo,
      binding = 'downloads';

  // check that this is the right series/element
  if (ht.series.binding == binding && ht.pointIndex > 0 &&
      ht.chartElement == ChartElement.SeriesSymbol) {

    // get current and previous values
    var chart = ht.series.chart,
        items = chart.collectionView.items,
        valNow = items[ht.pointIndex][binding],
        valPrev = items[ht.pointIndex - 1][binding];

    // add line if value is increasing
    if (valNow > valPrev) {
      var pt1 = chart.dataToPoint(ht.pointIndex, valNow),
          pt2 = chart.dataToPoint(ht.pointIndex - 1, valPrev);
      engine.drawLine(pt1.x, pt1.y, pt2.x, pt2.y, null, {
        stroke: 'gold',
        strokeWidth: 6
      });
    }
  }

  // render element as usual
  defaultRenderer();
}

itemsSource

itemsSource: any

Gets or sets the array or ICollectionView object that contains the data used to create the chart.

legend

legend: Legend

Gets or sets the chart legend.

offset

offset: number

Gets or sets the offset of the slices from the pie center.

The offset is measured as a fraction of the pie radius.

The default value for this property is 0.

palette

palette: string[]

Gets or sets an array of default colors to use for displaying each series.

The array contains strings that represents CSS colors. For example:

// use colors specified by name
chart.palette = ['red', 'green', 'blue'];
// or use colors specified as rgba-values
chart.palette = [
  'rgba(255,0,0,1)',
  'rgba(255,0,0,0.8)',
  'rgba(255,0,0,0.6)',
  'rgba(255,0,0,0.4)'];

There is a set of predefined palettes in the Palettes class that you can use, for example:

chart.palette = Palettes.coral;

plotMargin

plotMargin: any

Gets or sets the plot margin in pixels.

The plot margin represents the area between the edges of the control and the plot area.

By default, this value is calculated automatically based on the space required by the axis labels, but you can override it if you want to control the precise position of the plot area within the control (for example, when aligning multiple chart controls on a page).

You may set this property to a numeric value or to a CSS-style margin specification. For example:

// set the plot margin to 20 pixels on all sides
chart.plotMargin = 20;
// set the plot margin for top, right, bottom, left sides
chart.plotMargin = '10 15 20 25';
// set the plot margin for top/bottom (10px) and left/right (20px)
chart.plotMargin = '10 20';

reversed

reversed: boolean

Gets or sets a value that determines whether angles are reversed (counter-clockwise).

The default value is false, which causes angles to be measured in the clockwise direction.

The default value for this property is false.

rightToLeft

rightToLeft: boolean

Gets a value indicating whether the control is hosted in an element with right-to-left layout.

selectedIndex

selectedIndex: number

Gets or sets the index of the selected slice.

Offsets are measured as a fraction of the pie radius.

The default value for this property is 0.

selectedItemPosition

selectedItemPosition: Position

Gets or sets the position of the selected slice.

Setting this property to a value other than 'None' causes the pie to rotate when an item is selected.

Note that in order to select slices by clicking the chart, you must set the selectionMode property to 'Point'.

The default value for this property is Position.None.

selectionMode

selectionMode: SelectionMode

Gets or sets an enumerated value indicating whether or what is selected when the user clicks the chart.

The default value for this property is SelectionMode.None.

startAngle

startAngle: number

Gets or sets the starting angle for the pie slices, in degrees.

Angles are measured clockwise, starting at the 9 o'clock position.

The default value for this property is 0.

titles

titles: string[]

Gets or sets the pie titles.

The titles are shown above each pie chart when multiple properties are specified in binding. If the property is not set (undefined) the property names are used as pie titles.

tooltip

tooltip: ChartTooltip

Gets the chart's Tooltip.

Methods

addEventListener

  • addEventListener(target: EventTarget, type: string, fn: any, capture?: boolean, passive?: boolean): void
  • Adds an event listener to an element owned by this Control.

    The control keeps a list of attached listeners and their handlers, making it easier to remove them when the control is disposed (see the dispose and removeEventListener methods).

    Failing to remove event listeners may cause memory leaks.

    The passive parameter is set to false by default, which means the event handler may call event.preventDefault(). If you are adding passive handlers to touch or wheel events, setting this parameter to true will improve application performance.

    For details on passive event listeners, please see Improving scrolling performance with passive listeners.

    Parameters

    • target: EventTarget

      Target element for the event.

    • type: string

      String that specifies the event.

    • fn: any

      Function to execute when the event occurs.

    • Optional capture: boolean

      Whether the listener should be handled by the control before it is handled by the target element.

    • Optional passive: boolean

      Indicates that the handler will never call preventDefault().

    Returns void

applyTemplate

  • applyTemplate(classNames: string, template: string, parts: Object, namePart?: string): HTMLElement
  • Applies the template to a new instance of a control, and returns the root element.

    This method should be called by constructors of templated controls. It is responsible for binding the template parts to the corresponding control members.

    For example, the code below applies a template to an instance of an InputNumber control. The template must contain elements with the 'wj-part' attribute set to 'input', 'btn-inc', and 'btn-dec'. The control members 'tbx', 'btnUp', and '_btnDn' will be assigned references to these elements.

    this.applyTemplate('wj-control wj-inputnumber', template, {
      _tbx: 'input',
      _btnUp: 'btn-inc',
      _btnDn: 'btn-dec'
    }, 'input');

    Parameters

    • classNames: string

      Names of classes to add to the control's host element.

    • template: string

      An HTML string that defines the control template.

    • parts: Object

      A dictionary of part variables and their names.

    • Optional namePart: string

      Name of the part to be named after the host element. This determines how the control submits data when used in forms.

    Returns HTMLElement

beginUpdate

  • beginUpdate(): void

containsFocus

  • containsFocus(): boolean
  • Checks whether this control contains the focused element.

    Returns boolean

deferUpdate

  • deferUpdate(fn: Function): void
  • Executes a function within a beginUpdate/endUpdate block.

    The control will not be updated until the function has been executed. This method ensures endUpdate is called even if the function throws an exception.

    Parameters

    • fn: Function

      Function to be executed.

    Returns void

dispose

  • dispose(): void
  • Disposes of the control by removing its association with the host element.

    The dispose method automatically removes any event listeners added with the addEventListener method.

    Calling the dispose method is important in applications that create and remove controls dynamically. Failing to dispose of the controls may cause memory leaks.

    Returns void

endUpdate

  • endUpdate(): void

focus

  • focus(): void
  • Sets the focus to this control.

    Returns void

getTemplate

  • getTemplate(): string
  • Gets the HTML template used to create instances of the control.

    This method traverses up the class hierarchy to find the nearest ancestor that specifies a control template. For example, if you specify a prototype for the ComboBox control, which does not specify a template, it will override the template defined by the DropDown base class (the nearest ancestor that does specify a template).

    Returns string

hasOwnProperty

  • hasOwnProperty(v: PropertyKey): boolean
  • Determines whether an object has a property with the specified name.

    Parameters

    • v: PropertyKey

      A property name.

    Returns boolean

hitTest

  • Gets a HitTestInfo object with information about the specified point.

    Parameters

    • pt: any

      The point to investigate, in window coordinates.

    • Optional y: number

      The Y coordinate of the point (if the first parameter is a number).

    Returns HitTestInfo

    A HitTestInfo object containing information about the point.

initialize

  • initialize(options: any): void
  • Initializes the control by copying the properties from a given object.

    This method allows you to initialize controls using plain data objects instead of setting the value of each property in code.

    For example:

    grid.initialize({
      itemsSource: myList,
      autoGenerateColumns: false,
      columns: [
        { binding: 'id', header: 'Code', width: 130 },
        { binding: 'name', header: 'Name', width: 60 }
      ]
    });
    // is equivalent to
    grid.itemsSource = myList;
    grid.autoGenerateColumns = false;
    // etc.
    

    The initialization data is type-checked as it is applied. If the initialization object contains unknown property names or invalid data types, this method will throw.

    Parameters

    • options: any

      Object that contains the initialization data.

    Returns void

invalidate

  • invalidate(fullUpdate?: boolean): void
  • Invalidates the control causing an asynchronous refresh.

    Parameters

    • Optional e: HTMLElement

      Container element.

    Returns void

Static getControl

  • getControl(element: any): Control
  • Gets the control that is hosted in a given DOM element.

    Returns Control

Static invalidateAll

  • invalidateAll(e?: HTMLElement): void
  • Invalidates all Wijmo controls contained in an HTML element.

    Use this method when your application has dynamic panels that change the control's visibility or dimensions. For example, splitters, accordions, and tab controls usually change the visibility of its content elements. In this case, failing to notify the controls contained in the element may cause them to stop working properly.

    If this happens, you must handle the appropriate event in the dynamic container and call the Control.invalidateAll method so the contained Wijmo controls will update their layout information properly.

    Parameters

    • Optional e: HTMLElement

      Container element. If set to null, all Wijmo controls on the page will be invalidated.

    Returns void

Static refreshAll

  • refreshAll(e?: HTMLElement): void
  • Refreshes all Wijmo controls contained in an HTML element.

    This method is similar to invalidateAll, except the controls are updated immediately rather than after an interval.

    Parameters

    • Optional e: HTMLElement

      Container element. If set to null, all Wijmo controls on the page will be invalidated.

    Returns void
