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

An example of an Angular Gauge Chart is given below.

## Configurations

Let us now see the additional configurations/steps taken.

## chart.type

Configure the chart type to be gauge based. Set the type as 'gauge'.

```var chart = {
type: 'guage'
};
```

## pane

This type applies only to polar charts and angular gauges. This configuration object holds general options for the combined X and Y axes set. Each xAxis or yAxis can reference the pane by index.

```var pane = {
startAngle: -150,
endAngle: 150
};
```
