User Interaction

A user can interact with the legend by pausing on legend items. When a user does this, the point(s) that corresponds to the legend item being paused on becomes highlighted. To disable this capability, set the hoverMode option to "none".

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#pieChartContainer").dxPieChart({
        // ...
        legend: {
            hoverMode: "none"
        }
    });
});
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-pie-chart>
    <dxo-legend hoverMode="none"></dxo-legend>
</dx-pie-chart>
import { DxPieChartModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxPieChartModule
    ],
    // ...
})

Pausing on a legend item causes the pointHoverChanged event to raise. Refer to the Series Hover Events topic for details on handling this event.

In addition, a user can click legend items. The widget does not react to this by default, but you can instruct it to by handling the legendClick event. If the handling function is not going to be changed at runtime, assign it to the onLegendClick option when you configure the widget. Otherwise, or if you need several handlers for the legendClick event, subscribe to it using the on(eventName, eventHandler) method. This approach is more typical of jQuery.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#pieChartContainer").dxPieChart({
        // ...
        onLegendClick: function (e) {
            var points = e.points;
            // Event handling commands go here
        }
    });

    // ===== or =====
    var legendClickEventHandler1 = function (e) {
        var points = e.points;
        // First handler of the "legendClick" event
    };

    var legendClickEventHandler2 = function (e) {
        var points = e.points;
        // Second handler of the "legendClick" event
    };

    $("#pieChartContainer").dxPieChart("instance")
        .on("legendClick", legendClickEventHandler1)
        .on("legendClick", legendClickEventHandler2);
});
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-pie-chart ...
    (onLegendClick)="onLegendClick($event)">
</dx-pie-chart>
import { DxPieChartModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    onLegendClick (e) {
        let points = e.points;
        // Event handling commands go here
    }
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxPieChartModule
    ],
    // ...
})
