Highcharts - Area Chart using Ranges


Advertisements

Following is an example of a Area Chart using using ranges.

We have already seen the configuration used to draw a chart in Highcharts Configuration Syntax chapter. Now, let us see an example of an Area Chart using ranges. We will also see additional configurations.

We have changed the type attribute in chart.

chart

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

var chart = {
   type: 'arearange'  
};
