    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • I recommend that you research XAML pie charts written in WPF and try porting them over. If you have questions about an API which doesn't translate well, please ask a question about it.
