  • type: Array
  • default: []
  • An array of objects. Each object in the array represents one section. Every object must have a value property. Sum of all the sections' value should not exceed total, an error is thrown otherwise.
  • Object properties
    • value - Size of the section. Should be <= total.
    • color - Color of the section. vc-donut comes with 24 predefined colors, so this property is optional if you have <= 24 sections without the color property.
    • label - Name of this section. This is used in the legend as well as tooltip text.


default slot

If you want more control over text content of the chart, default slot can be used instead of the text prop.


Slot for plugging in your own legend.
