As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hello to all,

Can you do "smart positioning" and "on slice" for labelling a pie graph. The customer wants both the name to describe the slice on the slice and smart positioned.

smart positioning

setPieLabelDisplay(3);
setOtherSeries(true);
setOtherPercentage(20.0);
setPieFeelerTextDisplay(4);

When using either of these methods, the chart will display the labels inside
the slices

This doesn's seem to work.

I need both to render at the same time. I need the pie chart to show on the slice and smart positioned.

"Smart position" means place the Data label inside the slice, unless there is not enough space for the label to fit "nicely" and therefore the label will be outside the slice for that particular slice.
"On Slice" means to ALWAYS put the data label inside the slice.
So just by definition, you can't have both positon setting at the same time.
Now the other part of the question was that the customer wants the description of the slice.
The description of the slice is not a "position" of a slice.
To describe the slice you have to set Label display to have both the Name and either Percent or Value or both Percent and Value.
You can see your options to set Label display from Pie Labels dialog in InfoAssit by clicking on Series tab-->dropdown arrow on Data Labels-->More Data Labels Options.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Nick.
