    @RenderSection("Scripts", required: false)

Step 6: Add the below code to your Index.cshtml view page which is present under Views/Home folder, to initialize the Accumulationchart.

<ejs-accumulationchart id="container" title="Mobile Browser Statistics">
            <e-accumulationchart-legendsettings visible="false">
                <e-accumulation-series dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource" xName="xValue" yName="yValue" name="Browser">

Pie Series

By default, the pie series will be rendered when assigning the JSON data to the series using the
property. Map the field names in the JSON data to the
xName and
yName properties of the series.

@Html.EJS().AccumulationChart("container").Title("Mobile Browser Statistics")
                                      .LegendSettings(ls => ls.Visible(false)).EnableSmartLabels(true).
                                      Series(series =>
                                          series.DataLabel(dl => dl.Visible(true).Name("text"))
public ActionResult Index()
           List<PieChartData> chartData = new List<PieChartData>

                new PieChartData { xValue = "Chrome", yValue = 37, text = "37%", fill="#498fff"},
                new PieChartData { xValue = "UC Browser", yValue = 17, text = "17%", fill="#ffa060"},

            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
             return View();
         public class PieChartData
            public string xValue;
