Advertisements

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

An example of a combination chart having Column, Line and Pie is given below.

Configurations

Let us now see the additional configurations/steps taken.

series.type

Configure the series type to be column/line/pie based. series.type decides the series type for the chart. Here, the default value is "line".

var series = {
   type: 'column'
};
