PDF Output does not show Chart texts

Hello Support,

I have a problem with Cells and PDF output. XLSX output works well and all chart labels are shown as expected but when trying to save the same output as PDF the labels disappear.

XLSX Output:
grafik.png (4.7 KB)

PDF Output:
grafik.png (4.6 KB)

The following code produces the chart:

int chartIndex = m_Overview.getCharts().add(ChartType.PIE_3_D, 4, 13, R_OV_R, 30);

Chart chart = m_Overview.getCharts().get(chartIndex);
chart.getChartArea().getArea().setForegroundColor(Color.fromArgb(217, 217, 217));

SeriesCollection series = chart.getNSeries();

series.add("H8:H9", true);
series.get(0).getPoints().get(0).getArea().setForegroundColor(Color.fromArgb(140, 140, 140));
series.get(0).getPoints().get(1).getArea().setForegroundColor(Color.fromArgb(180, 0, 0));
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("0.000000");
series.get(0).getPoints().get(0).getDataLabels().setText("Availability " + df.format(availability)+ "%");
series.get(0).getPoints().get(1).getDataLabels().setText("Outage " + df.format(outage) + "%");


Thanks in advance,


Thanks for the sample code and screenshots.

Please provide the output Excel and PDF files via Aspose.Cells APIs, we will check it soon.

Both have been generated with the latest Java-API 18.8

I am not allowed to upload PDF or XLSX files here… so how can I provice my outputs?

To clarify… the support forum prevents me from uploading the .xlsx and .pdf files here.

How can I provide you those files?


You may zip the files and upload here. If still facing issue, upload file to some third party file hosting service like Dropbox and share the link here.

Attached a zip file containing both outputs.
