Hi There,

I am experiencing some difficulty with the params for addTemplateChart my code is:
[code]$legends = array(
'Confident' => array(10),
'Needs Some Development' => array(30),
'Needs Significant Development' => array(40)

$paramsChart =
'data' => $legends,
'type' => 'pie3DChart',
'title' => 'Capability Areas',
'legendpos' => 'b',
'legendoverlay' => 0,
'border' => 1,
'cornerX' => 20,
'cornerY' => 20,
'cornerP' => 30,
'color' => 2,
'textWrap' => 0,
'sizeX' => 15,
'sizeY' => 15,
'jc' => 'center',
'showPercent' => 0,
'font' => 'Verdana'

$docx->addTemplateChart('CHART', $paramsChart);[/code]

and the output I get in Word is:

my questions are:
1. Why is the Title appearing in the legend overlay,
2. Why is the legend overlay appearing at all 'legendoverlay' is set to 0
3. Why are the percentages showing 'showPercent' is set to 0
4. How do I get the legend to show just the Legend name and the Percent (i.e. 'Confident 50%')

an example of what I am trying to achieve ( and the Word 2010 settings required) is below:

I've figured out what I need to do, I just need some advice on which class to edit and where in the class file:

I need to edit the chart.xml file; specifically the contents of <c:dLbls> tag and include the following:
<c:showLegendKey val="1"/><c:showVal val="1"/><c:showCatName val="1"/><c:showSerName val="1"/><c:showPercent val="1"/><c:showBubbleSize val="1"/><c:showLeaderLines val="1"/>

any advice on with Inc file to edit and where?

Thanks in advance!

We're doing several changes and improvements about charts. I have sent you issue to one of the developers.
