This example shows how to show/hide the labels of the ASP.NET MVC Pie Chart and specify how they are aligned.

You can do that by getting a reference to the Chart client-object via:

var chart = $("#chart").data("kendoChart")

which will allow you to set and configure its series collection and attributes:

var pieSeries = chart.options.series[0];
pieSeries.labels.visible = true|false; // If set to true the chart will display the series labels.
pieSeries.labels.align = "circle"; // "circle" - the labels are positioned in circle around the chart."column" - the labels are positioned in columns to the left and right of the chart.

You can find a complete list of the series attributes in the control’s API documentation.
