    I need the legend names to be populated from the ItemsSource. How can I do this?

    pieChart.DefaultSeriesDefinition = 


    new Pie3DSeriesDefinition();



    pieChart.DefaultView.ChartLegend.UseAutoGeneratedItems = 





    pieChart.DefaultView.ChartLegend.Header = 






    new CameraExtension());



    var data = new List<Data>




    new Data { Name = "ABC", Amount = 1300 },




    new Data { Name = "XYZ", Amount = 290 }



    pieChart.ItemsSource = data;

    Hi Lanto,

     Thank you for contacting us with your question.
    You can easily do that if you use Manual Series Mapping.

    Here is sample code for your case:

    SeriesMapping seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping();
    seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = new Pie3DSeriesDefinition();
    seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping("Amount", DataPointMember.YValue));
    seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.LegendDisplayMode = LegendDisplayMode.DataPointLabel; 
    seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new     ItemMapping("Name",DataPointMember.LegendLabel));

    With the previous snippet you can create mapping between your data and parts of the chart.
    Amount will be mapped to YValue for a DataPoint.
    Name will be mapped to LegendLabel.

    It is important to tell the chart to take the LegendLabel from the data point itself.
    seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.LegendDisplayMode = LegendDisplayMode.DataPointLabel;
