We will continue to discuss the new features that have become available in the Stimulsoft Reports and Dashboards 2023.2 version. Today, we will focus on expanding the capabilities of analytics and data visualization for the Doughnut chart.

What has changed?

So, let's begin with the main update: in the new release for the Doughnut chart type, the feature to display an indicator inside the ring has been added. This feature allows displaying an analytical value within the chart itself.

Here's an example of what it looks like:

The chart indicator consists of two components: the value and its title. The value can either be a primitive value or an expression, where the result of the expression becomes the value of the indicator. In other words, within an expression, you can specify a data column, a variable, or even the sum of multiple columns.

The indicator title is an additional option that allows you to provide a caption, label, or note for the indicator value. You can also specify a primitive value or expression as the title.

How does it work in reports?

In reports, the indicator is configured using the Indicator property group in the chart area settings.

By utilizing the properties within this group, you can specify the title text and its color, the indicator value and its color. Additionally, if there is no need to display the chart indicator, you can set the Visibility property to false.


How does it work in dashboards?

In dashboards, the process of setting up the indicator differs slightly. The chart editor includes an Indicator field for specifying a field with the indicator value. The design of the indicator is configured using the Area.Indicator property group of the chart. The properties within this group allow you to specify the title and its color, as well as the color of the value.
