In this article, we will learn MVC, using Angular Pie Chart, which is used for two types of UI, which are given below.

  • Angular Knob Pie Chart.
  • Angular Easy Pie Chart.

Angular Knob

Output 1

Create MVC Project

Open Visual Studio 2015.

Go to New menu > click New and then project. Now, it will open New Project Window.

You can select ASP.NET Web Application on Framework 4.6. Enter the name of the project in the Solution name text box, then click the OK button.


One more Window should appear. Select the MVC template in this popup and click the OK button. Now, you can start to play.

Configure Angular Knob

We will download Angular Knob plugin from here.


  • It works based on canvas.
  • You can implement keyboard events.
  • You can change UI touches, as well as mouse and mouse wheel events.
  • Overloads an input element.

Open the _Layout.cshtml and refer the min.js file in this view page.

Open the Angular module and name its injection of Knob, ui-knob, as shown below:

Open the HTML page and set the design of your chart using the knob element and attribute.

Set the values for the attribute. Open the “angular controller” files and hard code an input or you may get and bind the values from the Server side.

Inject as “’easypiechart’” into the Angular module.
