extends Path

The PiePath class represents a pie mark that is used in a pie chart. You cannot create a PiePath object directly, instead, you need to use the divide method in the Scene class to transform a CirclePath to a collection of PiePath objects. Here is an explanation of the divide operation.

radiusthe radius of the pieNumber100
startAnglethe start angle of the pie in degreesNumber0
endAnglethe end angle of the pie in degreesNumber90

Angles in Atlas are specified using the polar coordinate system, where 0 is at the positive x axis, and the angle increases in the counterclockwise direction. The figure below illustrates various values of startAngle and endAngle.
