GWT Highcharts - Basic Bar Chart


Advertisements


Following is an example of a Bar Chart.

We have already seen the configurations used to draw a chart in Highcharts Configuration Syntax chapter. Now, let us see an example of a basic bar chart. We will also understand additional configuration. We have changed the type attribute in chart.

chart

Configure the chart type to be 'bar' based. chart.type decides the series type for the chart. Here, the default value is "line".

chart.setType(Type.BAR);
