drawPieLegend - Write the legend of your pie charts

This function will write the legend of your pie charts based on the defined abscissa series set with the setAbscissa function. It is possible to tune the rendering by playing with the $Format array. To learn more about this please read the Format array guide.

X and Y are the coordinates where will be drawn the legend.
Format is an array containing the drawing parameters of the arrow.
