Hi Benjamin, 
 
Query: in the tooltip, format the value as the percentage of the overall value. 
 
By using tooltip template and IValueConverter we can achieve your requirement. We have prepared sample based on your requirement and it will be download from below link.  
 
 
Code snippet: 
<chart:DoughnutSeries x:Name="series" EnableTooltip="True" . . .> 
                        <chart:DoughnutSeries.TooltipTemplate> 
                            <DataTemplate > 
                                <StackLayout Orientation="Vertical"  VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand" Spacing="0" Padding="3" Margin="0"> 
                                    <Label Text="{Binding Value}" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalOptions="StartAndExpand" TextColor="Black" FontAttributes="Bold" FontFamily="Helvetica" FontSize="12" /> 
                                    <Label Text="{Binding Value, Converter={StaticResource LabelConverter}, ConverterParameter={x:Reference series}}" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalOptions="EndAndExpand" TextColor="Black" FontAttributes="None" FontFamily="Helvetica" Margin="0" FontSize="10" /> 
                                </StackLayout> 
                            </DataTemplate> 
                        </chart:DoughnutSeries.TooltipTemplate>                </chart:DoughnutSeries> 
  
[C#] 
    public class LabelConverter : IValueConverter 
    { 
        public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture) 
        { 
           if(value != null) 
            { 
                if(parameter !=null) 
                { 
                    var data = (double)value; 
                    var series = parameter as DoughnutSeries; 
                    if(series != null) 
                    { 
                        var datasource = series.BindingContext as DoughnutSeriesViewModel; 
                        var percentage = (data / datasource.Total) * 100; 
                        return "(" + percentage + " %" + ")"; 
                    } 
                } 
            } 
            return value; 
        } 
 
        public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture) 
        { 
            return value; 
        } 
    }

Hi Benjamin, 
  
We have validated your code snippet and we found that you have missed to initialize ChartLegend instance before the ItemTemplate population. Please refer the below code snippet. 
  
  
<chart:SfChart.Legend> 
                    <chart:ChartLegend DockPosition="Bottom" OverflowMode="Wrap"> 
                        <chart:ChartLegend.ItemTemplate> 
                            <DataTemplate> 
                              <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" WidthRequest="143"> 
                                  <BoxView Color="{Binding IconColor}" HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Center" HeightRequest="13" WidthRequest="13" /> 
                                  <Label FontSize="13" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" Text="{Binding DataPoint.Name}"/> 
                                  <Label HorizontalTextAlignment="End" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalOptions="EndAndExpand" FontSize="13" Text="{Binding DataPoint.Value}"/> 
                              </StackLayout> 
                           </DataTemplate>     
                      </chart:ChartLegend.ItemTemplate> 
                 </chart:ChartLegend> 
</chart:SfChart.Legend> 
  
  
Please let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi.

With regards to my requirement to show tooltip outside of the doughnut chart? is it possible?

Current view

expected view


As you can see from the current view, can't difference is the tooltip belong to the darker shade portion or lighter shade portion of the chart.


HM Hemalatha Marikumar Syncfusion Team September 9, 2019 05:06 AM

Hi Benjamin,

We have analyzed your requirement and would like to let you know that you have used template to show the tooltip. By default, tooltip appears at the center of the particular segment. But if there is no enough space to show the tooltip means, it will automatically place near the segment where it has space to render the view completely. So please ensure whether you have enough space to render the custom view. 

Please get back to us for further assistance.

Regards, 
Hemalatha M.
