  • text - specifies the content of the legend.
  • pointIndex - specifies the current point index that is applicable for circular chart type alone.
  • seriesIndex - specifies the current series index.
  • legendIconType - specifies the shape of the legend.
  • color - to get and set the color of the legend icon.

onDataLabelTapped

Triggers when tapping on the data label of the data point in the series. The onDataLabelTapped Callback contains the following arguments.

  • seriesIndex - Specifies the series index of the tapped data label
  • pointIndex - Specifies the point index of the tapped data label.
  • text - Specifies the content of the tapped data label.
  • dataLabelSettings - to get the data label customization options specified in that particular series.
  • viewportPointIndex - to get the viewport index value of the tapped data label.

Note: This callback will not be called, when the builder is specified for data label (data label template). For this case, custom widget specified in the DataLabelSettings.builder property can be wrapped using the GestureDetector and this functionality can be achieved in the application level.

@override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
      return Container(
        child: SfCircularChart(
          onDatalabelTapped: (DataLabelTapArgs args) {
            print(args.seriesIndex);                 
          },
          series: <CircularSeries<Sample, DateTime>>[
            PieSeries<Sample, DateTime>(
                dataSource: sample,
                xValueMapper: (Sample data, _) => data.x,
                yValueMapper: (Sample data, _) => data.y,
                dataLabelSettings: DataLabelSettings(
                  isVisible: true),
            )
          ]
        )
      );
    }

onChartTouchInteractionUp

Triggers when tapped or clicked on the chart area. You can get the tapped region using the position argument.

@override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
      return Container(
            child: SfCircularChart(
                onChartTouchInteractionUp: (ChartTouchInteractionArgs args){
                  print(args.position.dx.toString());
                  print(args.position.dy.toString());
                }
            )
        );
    }

onChartTouchInteractionMove

Triggers when tapped or clicked and moved on the chart area. You can get the tapped region using the position argument.

@override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        return Container(
            child: SfCircularChart(
                onChartTouchInteractionMove: (ChartTouchInteractionArgs args){
                  print(args.position.dx.toString());
                  print(args.position.dy.toString());
                }
            )
        );
    }

onChartTouchInteractionDown

Triggers when touched or clicked on the chart area. You can get the tapped region using the position argument.

@override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        return Container(
          child: SfCircularChart(
                onChartTouchInteractionDown: (ChartTouchInteractionArgs args){
                  print(args.position.dx.toString());
                  print(args.position.dy.toString());
                }
            )
        );
    }

onRendererCreated

Triggers when the series renderer is created. This callback can be used to obtain the CircularSeriesController instance, which is used to access the the public methods in the series.

//Initialize the series controller
    CircularSeriesController? circularSeriesController;

    final List<ChartData> chartData = <ChartData>[
      ChartData(1, 24),
      ChartData(2, 20),
      ChartData(3, 23),
      ChartData(4, 57),
      ChartData(5, 30),
      ChartData(6, 41),
    ];

    return Column(children: <Widget>[
      Container(
          child: SfCircularChart(
        series: <CircularSeries<ChartData, dynamic>>[
          DoughnutSeries<ChartData, dynamic>(
            dataSource: chartData,
            xValueMapper: (ChartData data, _) => data.x,
            yValueMapper: (ChartData data, _) => data.y,
            onRendererCreated: (CircularSeriesController controller) {
              circularSeriesController = controller;
              },
            ),
          ],
        )
      ),
      Container(
          child: ElevatedButton(
              onPressed: () {
                //Removed a point from data source
                chartData.removeAt(0);
                //Added a point to the data source
                chartData.add(ChartData(3, 23));
                //Here accessed the public method of the series.
                circularSeriesController!.updateDataSource(
                  addedDataIndexes: <int>[chartData.length - 1],
                  removedDataIndexes: <int>[0],
                );
              },
              child: Container(
                child: Text('Add a point'),
                )
              )
            )
          ]

    }

    class ChartData {
      ChartData(this.x, this.y);
      final num x;
      final double? y;
    }

onCreateShader

The onCreateShader provides options to get the outer rect, inner rect, and render type (either series or legend) using ChartShaderDetails class.

The onCreateShader callback is called once while rendering
the data points and legend. For further reference on this callback, check the Gradient and ImageShader section.
