JavaScript Figure Reference: pie Traces

A pie trace is an object with the key "type" equal to "pie" (i.e. {"type": "pie"}) and any of the keys listed below.

A data visualized by the sectors of the pie is set in `values`. The sector labels are set in `labels`. The sector colors are set in `marker.colors`

  • type
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: "pie"
  • name
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: string

    Sets the trace name. The trace name appear as the legend item and on hover.

  • title
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: object containing one or more of the keys listed below.
    • text
      Parent: data[type=pie].title
      Type: string
      Default: ""

      Sets the title of the chart. If it is empty, no title is displayed. Note that before the existence of `title.text`, the title's contents used to be defined as the `title` attribute itself. This behavior has been deprecated.

    • font
      Parent: data[type=pie].title
      Type: object containing one or more of the keys listed below.

      Sets the font used for `title`. Note that the title's font used to be set by the now deprecated `titlefont` attribute.

      • family
        Parent: data[type=pie].title.font
        Type: string or array of strings

        HTML font family - the typeface that will be applied by the web browser. The web browser will only be able to apply a font if it is available on the system which it operates. Provide multiple font families, separated by commas, to indicate the preference in which to apply fonts if they aren't available on the system. The Chart Studio Cloud (at https://chart-studio.plotly.com or on-premise) generates images on a server, where only a select number of fonts are installed and supported. These include "Arial", "Balto", "Courier New", "Droid Sans",, "Droid Serif", "Droid Sans Mono", "Gravitas One", "Old Standard TT", "Open Sans", "Overpass", "PT Sans Narrow", "Raleway", "Times New Roman".

      • size
        Parent: data[type=pie].title.font
        Type: number or array of numbers greater than or equal to 1

      Specifies the location of the `title`. Note that the title's position used to be set by the now deprecated `titleposition` attribute.

  • visible
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: enumerated , one of ( true | false | "legendonly" )
    Default: true

    Determines whether or not this trace is visible. If "legendonly", the trace is not drawn, but can appear as a legend item (provided that the legend itself is visible).

  • showlegend
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: boolean
    Default: true

    Determines whether or not an item corresponding to this trace is shown in the legend.

  • values
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: data array

    Sets the values of the sectors. If omitted, we count occurrences of each label.

  • labels
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: data array

    Sets the sector labels. If `labels` entries are duplicated, we sum associated `values` or simply count occurrences if `values` is not provided. For other array attributes (including color) we use the first non-empty entry among all occurrences of the label.

    Alternate to `labels`. Builds a numeric set of labels. Use with `dlabel` where `label0` is the starting label and `dlabel` the step.

  • pull
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: number or array of numbers between or equal to 0 and 1

Numbers are formatted using d3-format's syntax %{variable:d3-format}, for example "Price: %{y:$.2f}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format for details on the formatting syntax. Dates are formatted using d3-time-format's syntax %{variable|d3-time-format}, for example "Day: %{2019-01-01|%A}". https://github.com/d3/d3-time-format#locale_format for details on the date formatting syntax. Every attributes that can be specified per-point (the ones that are `arrayOk: true`) are available. variables `label`, `color`, `value`, `percent` and `text`.

  • hovertext
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: string or array of strings
    Default: ""

  • hoverinfo
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: flaglist string. Any combination of "label", "text", "value", "percent", "name" joined with a "+" OR "all" or "none" or "skip".
    Examples: "label", "text", "label+text", "label+text+value", "all"
    Default: "all"

    Determines which trace information appear on hover. If `none` or `skip` are set, no information is displayed upon hovering. But, if `none` is set, click and hover events are still fired.

  • hovertemplate
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: string or array of strings
    Default: ""

    Template string used for rendering the information that appear on hover box. Note that this will override `hoverinfo`. Variables are inserted using %{variable}, for example "y: %{y}". Numbers are formatted using d3-format's syntax %{variable:d3-format}, for example "Price: %{y:$.2f}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format for details on the formatting syntax. Dates are formatted using d3-time-format's syntax %{variable|d3-time-format}, for example "Day: %{2019-01-01|%A}". https://github.com/d3/d3-time-format#locale_format for details on the date formatting syntax. The variables available in `hovertemplate` are the ones emitted as event data described at this link https://plotly.com/javascript/plotlyjs-events/#event-data. Additionally, every attributes that can be specified per-point (the ones that are `arrayOk: true`) are available. variables `label`, `color`, `value`, `percent` and `text`. Anything contained in tag `<extra>` is displayed in the secondary box, for example "<extra>{fullData.name}</extra>". To hide the secondary box completely, use an empty tag `<extra></extra>`.

  • meta
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: number or categorical coordinate string

    Assigns extra meta information associated with this trace that can be used in various text attributes. Attributes such as trace `name`, graph, axis and colorbar `title.text`, annotation `text` `rangeselector`, `updatemenues` and `sliders` `label` text all support `meta`. To access the trace `meta` values in an attribute in the same trace, simply use `%{meta[i]}` where `i` is the index or key of the `meta` item in question. To access trace `meta` in layout attributes, use `%{data[n[.meta[i]}` where `i` is the index or key of the `meta` and `n` is the trace index.

    Type: boolean
    Default: true

    Determines whether or not the sectors are reordered from largest to smallest.

  • uirevision
    Parent: data[type=pie]
    Type: number or categorical coordinate string

    Controls persistence of some user-driven changes to the trace: `constraintrange` in `parcoords` traces, as well as some `editable: true` modifications such as `name` and `colorbar.title`. Defaults to `layout.uirevision`. Note that other user-driven trace attribute changes are controlled by `layout` attributes: `trace.visible` is controlled by `layout.legend.uirevision`, `selectedpoints` is controlled by `layout.selectionrevision`, and `colorbar.(x|y)` (accessible with `config: {editable: true}`) is controlled by `layout.editrevision`. Trace changes are tracked by `uid`, which only falls back on trace index if no `uid` is provided. So if your app can add/remove traces before the end of the `data` array, such that the same trace has a different index, you can still preserve user-driven changes if you give each trace a `uid` that stays with it as it moves.
