Highcharts - Spline Chart with Inverted Axes


Advertisements

Following is an example of a spline chart with inverted axes.

We have already seen configuration used to draw a chart in Highcharts Configuration Syntax chapter. Now, we will discuss an example of a spline chart with inverted axes.

Configurations

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

Configure the axes to be inverted. When true x axis is vertical and y axis is horizontal – if a bar series is present in the chart, the same will be inverted. Here, the default value is false.

chart

var chart = {
   type: 'spline',
   inverted: true
};
