Pie charts labels

This variation of a donut chart demonstrates how to add labels with lines. Clicking on the button changes the displayed data. Check Pie Chart with Labels and Missing Data to see how to handle transitions with missing/new data.

Hello David,
Excellent transitions! I managed to get external data, and refresh on click, but I have a problem making it work in "Chrome" and "Firefox" browsers, the view windows is only in the upper 1/3 left corner, not showing the full graph. I tried adding .attr to the d3.select, but that didnt work. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

hello,
Amazing graph cheers for this! But how to prevent that the labels overlap? i tried several solutions from stack overflow but none of the seem to work properly.
Good work cheers

Any news about the overlapping issue?

hello!Ask a question!How to deal with the problem of overlapping text?
