Adding the Actions (con't)

Step 4.5 : Create the pie chart itself

As the final step, we create the chart itself. For each percent value, the pieslice is duplicated and rotated the right amount to position it next to the previously placed pieslices. Color is set in the same way as was done for the key symbols. A closing bracket is added for the loop begun in step 3, a stop action is added at the end of the frame, and we're done! Run Control, Test Movie to try it out.

    // duplicate slice until percent is complete, set color
    for (j=0; j < aPercent[i]; j++) {
        mcPie.duplicateMovieClip ("mcPie"+i*nElements+j, nDepth++);
        _root["mcPie"+i*nElements+j]._rotation = nRunningSum - 3.6;
        nRunningSum -= 3.6;
        tempColor = new Color(eval("mcPie" + i*nElements+j));
    // nDepth is separate from i because it's used for key symbol and text too
stop ();
