I am trying to determine if there is a way to set the "start" angle for a pie and/or doughnut series. In other words, I want my first element in the series to start at the "12 o'clock" position (top) of the pie chart and not at the "3 o'clock" position.


Is this possible without manually applying a transform? A rotation transform would work, but then all of the chart labels would be rotated as well.

Hi Powers,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We would like to let you know that, currently we do not have support to change the start angle position of Pie Series (Circular Series). However we will add new API and provide the support for changing Pie segment angle in three weeks.

Please let us know if you have any queries.

I realize this post is regarding the SfChart control, but I'm wondering how to implement this requirement in the classic Chart control.

Is it possible? Any help is appreciated.

Hi James,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

Currently we don’t have StartAngle support for Pie Series in classic chart control. We have this support for SfChart control.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
