Chart with Point Addition Capability


Advertisements

We have already seen the configuration used to draw a chart in Highcharts Configuration Syntax chapter.

An example of a Chart with point addition capability is given below.

Configurations

Let us now see the additional configurations/steps taken.

chart.events

Add a click method to the chart.event property. This method adds a new point using the x, y co-ordinate of the clicked area in the chart to the series.

chart.setClickEventHandler(new ChartClickEventHandler() {
   @Override
   public boolean onClick(ChartClickEvent chartClickEvent) {
      series.addPoint(chartClickEvent.getXAxisValue(), chartClickEvent.getYAxisValue());  
      return true;  
   }
});
