Hi Josh,

Thanks for using Syncfusion product.

We have analyzed this.

This cannot be done directly, but can be achieved as an work around.

The below code snippet shows a method which is triggered on animationComplete of chart.


function complete(sender){  // triggered on animation complete


var template = $("<span>Project Cost Breakdown</span>").attr('id', "template1"); //create span tag

$(template).appendTo("#chartContainer_container"); //append it to container


var template = "#template1";

var textWidth = $(template).width(); // get span width

var textHeight = $(template).height(); //get span height


 $(template).css({"position": "absolute",                     // apply css

"marginLeft": sender.model.m_AreaBounds.Width/2 - textWidth/4, 

 "marginTop": sender.model.m_AreaBounds.Height/2 + textHeight/2,

"display" : "block"





We have also prepared a sample to illustrate this.
