How to make interactive Pie Charts?

Dec 30, 2015

I am trying to make a pie chart react with a slider.  Are there any examples where you can drag the slider and one portion of the pie chart will appear in a clock wise motion.  Then as you keep dragging the rest of the pie chart will appear. Thanks!

You could create the pie chart as an object with various states that are displayed depending on the changing slider variable. Here is a (somewhat unrelated, but the basic concept applies) example that uses an object with custom states for a countdown timer. And here is a slider example that changes the state of an image object based on the slider variable.

Hi, Jordan -- In addition to the suggestions and examples Michael has offered, I wanted to stop in to share a few other general ideas for interactive pie charts that you may want to consider:

It's probably a bit late, but maybe someone else will find this useful. The best solution to adding a custom chart in Storyline that I know of is this widget: What's really great is that if you change the values of the variables, you can re-generate the updated chart.
