n Note You may find entering sector colors a bit tedious. The code download for this chapter includes a JavaScript

For the sake of saving space, that function isn't discussed here.

var sectorNames = Array();
var sectorValues = Array();
var sectorColors = Array();
$("#btnDraw").click(function () {;
if ($("#chkGradient").is(":checked")) {
var linearGradient = context.createLinearGradient(0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
