Responsive Semicircular doughnut Chart Using Google chart


As we know, at the time of writing this tip, Google doesn't support semi circular doughnut charts. But in some conditions, which I also faced, we need to show doughnut chart in semicircular form. Some chart scripts do this but these are paid scripts. Following is the simple trick to show doughnut chart in semicircular form.

Using the Code

Following is the sample script for semicircular doughnut chart.

Just add links to min js and google chart js. Also take a div element with id 'piechart' in HTML and simply run your code.


<script type="text/javascript">
google.load("visualization", "1", {packages:["corechart"]});
$(window).on("resize", function (event) {

function initChart() {
  var options = {
    width: '100%',
    height: '100%',
    tooltip: { isHtml: true },
    chartArea: {left: "3%",top: "3%",height: "94%",width: "94%"},
    colors: ['#7CB5EC', '#5C5C61','transparent'],
    pieHole: 0.50,
    pieStartAngle: -90,
    is3D: false,
    pieSliceText: 'none',
  var data = google.visualization.arrayToDataTable([
    ['Task', 'Hours per Day'],
          ['Work',     11],
          ['Eat',      2],
          ["Hide" , (11+2)]                    //addition of value of all elements
  drawChart(data, options);

function drawChart(data, options) {

var tooltip = [
    Math.round((11/(11+2))*100) + "%",
    Math.round((2/(11+2))*100)+ "%",

var chart = new google.visualization.PieChart(document.getElementById('piechart'));
  var sliceid = 0;

function eventHandler(e){
    try {
      selection = chart.getSelection();
      sliceid = selection[0].row;
    catch(err) {
    $(".google-visualization-tooltip-item-list li:eq(0)").css("font-weight", "bold");
    $(".google-visualization-tooltip-item-list li:eq(1)").html
        (tooltip[sliceid]).css("font-family", "Arial");
  }, 'onmousedown', eventHandler);, 'onmouseover', eventHandler);
  chart.draw(data, options);


CSS Style

#piechart {
  top: 0;
  left: 0;

HTML Element

<div id="piechart"></div>

When reading up on how to create charts one expects to see screenshots or at least a demo URL.
