I am trying to find the ability to show and hide individual labels rather than all in a Pie Chart. My problem revolves around when certain wedges are quite small. I would like to hide the labels for the small wedges. However I am only finding

which is all or nothing and the delegate function
number(for plot: CPTPlot, field fieldEnum: UInt, record idx: UInt) -> Any?

which allows the setting of the value for the wedge size and the corresponding label. 

Is there an ability to show certain labels where I can get the labels as an array? Or the ability to set the value for the wedge size but provide the value for the wedge label separately so I could fill it with an empty string?

Here's an example for reference: 


Thank you for any and all help,

The superclass, CPTPlot, has datasource methods that will let you hide labels easily.

    func dataLabels(for plot: CPTPlot, recordIndexRange indexRange: NSRange) -> [CPTLayer]?

    func dataLabel(for plot: CPTPlot, record idx: UInt) -> CPTLayer?
