Highcharts - Gauge Chart with Dual Axes


Advertisements

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

An example of a Gauge Chart with dual axes 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 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
};
