Environment: VC 6, SP 4, Windows 2000


In my work, I always want to display several data series with holes together. Massimo Colurcio has developed a control to display data with a hole, but it is not easy to use, especially when the data is very sparse, so I decided to develop my own control based on his work. At the same time, I also want to show this data series in a pie chart fashion.

How to Use the Application

Follow these steps to set up and use the Chart and Pie project:

  1. Add the files in the source package to your project.
  2. Do initilization. See CChartView::OnInitialUpdate().
  3. Call Add of CDataChart to add datasets to the control.

Use the following code as shown below:

void Add(int nDatasetID, int nIndex, double nData);

to display a line chart, or
to display a pie chart.

And that's all.
