Pie Chart Enhancements

Hi,

Is there a way to enhance this pie chart? My output has a lot of white space above and below. How can I make the pie chart become bigger and occupy the extra white space instead? Please see below for the current code.

Thanks!

Milton

%stpbegin;

goptions reset=all;

goptions cback=white device=activex vsize=3in hsize=3in transparency;

%colormac;

pattern1 v=solid color=red;

pattern2 v=solid color=orange;

pattern3 v=solid color=blue;

pattern4 v=solid color=yellow;

legend1 label=none frame;

proc gchart

data=tmp;

pie taxpayer /

sumvar=percentage

slice=arrow

value=inside

explode="CORPORATE"

;

run;

quit;

%stpend;

Perhaps change the proportions of your page (such as ...  goptions xpixels=500 ypixels=200Smiley Wink

Perhaps try using shorter text for the slice labels, or using mixed-case rather than upper-case.

Perhaps try using a smaller font.

Perhaps try using some other devices besides activex (such as png and java).

Perhaps resort to putting the labels inside the slices.

better to use a bar chart with all bars the same colour except for the corporate bar ...

Hi Bill,

That is a good suggestion. We'll experiment with that one also. Thanks!

Hi Dr. Allison,

Yeah I've been experimenting already with those properties already except for the gdevice. Currently it's activex. Will try to experiment with png and java.
