  1. multiple axis alignment control

    There seems to be a lot of posts in the forum asking how to align the 0 values of multiple y axes.

    My thoughts for implementing this:
    Chart level option (like alignTicks): alignBaseline: boolean (default: true)
    Axis level option: baseline:(numeric) (default: 0)

    By default 0 is the baseline for each axis, and by default the 0 value for each axis is aligned.
    The user can set the baseline to any other set of numbers that should be aligned, or turn off alignment.

    • Stacked area (spline etc) in irregular datetime series

      When you create more datetime irregular series, by now only the same datetime values are used to create the stack, resulting in a correct-but-ugly graph.

          • toggle legend box

            if you can add a button which allows user to toggle the legend the it will be great, because as of now if you are displaying the legend on chart area then some part of chart points get hidden because of legend, and user just cant see them because legend box is on top of the chart points.

            I even tried to do a normal toggle action with help of jquery but there are some issues when we do it. e.g. if we hide the legend and then add some series dynamically to chart then series gets added properly but…

            • Add ability to change Rangeselector position

              Currently Rangeselector position is fixed at top. It should be possible to provide custom position for rangeselector

              • Horizontal Legend Paging

                The legend paging that was implemented works well for vertical legends, but not for horizontal legends. In the case where there are many plots on the same chart, the paging buttons take up too much vertical space on the chart, they should be floated to the left or to the right, or the legend should become a "scrollable" object to avoid this issue.

                P.S. Another issue is that the legend has some clipping issues if there are more than 2 or 3 pages.

                This can all be seen here:

                • grouped x-axis

                  Like Excel does when you use 2 columns for the labels.See example on http://minus.com/mHNwVqDZO.

                  Each item on the category axis falls in a group. The groups are displayed below the axis items. Each group name is displayed only once (centered below all its items). Groups are devided by longer tickmarks.
                  Each group can contain a different number of items.
                  Possible uses:
                  * display structured categories like product and product group or country and region
                  * display two or more groups side by side, like gross sales and net sales, or this year and last year.

                    • Replace rectangle zoom with mouse panning and zooming

                      Panning and Zooming like in Google Maps is way nicer to use than the current implementation of rectangle zoom. Would be great to have such feature :)

                          • Allow specifying borderRadius for individual corners

                            'Border radius' on a column chart currently affects all 4 corners of a column identically. Please, could we have the ability to set individual corners at different radii?
                            Personally I would like this so that I can round just the top of a stacked column chart, but i think it would be a great addition and allow some nice extra flexibility in look & feel.

                                  Making backends for data bases is complex, as it covers a wide range of different databases and languages. A project like this would have to start with only a few of the most popular backends. We are currently considering a “connectivity” project that will do some of this.

                                • Add "ondblclick"-Option - e.g. for Exporting-Module

                                  What I want to do:
                                  exportButton.onclick = show Menu
                                  exportButton.ondblclick = direct export

                                  This should actually be possible using jQuery, but I dislike adding Code beside the Highcharts-Object.

                                  • multi dimensional column charts

                                    Recently I came across the requirement of implementing a column chart with individual widths of each column. This allows us to express two informations within one bar, I know pretty well about the discussions of "is this still readable" bit to advanced controllers it is.

                                    I think it would be a great feature to include this second dimension to bar and column charts in order to create so called "multi dimensional bar charts".

                                    Thanx for checking this feature request,
                                    Flo!

                                    • Allow clickable tooltips

                                      It would be good if you could hover a point on the graph and then click on the tooltip that appears so that you could redirect the user to a relevant page (e.g. a news article).

                                        • Collision Detection for Data Labels

                                          Implement collision detection algorithm that repositions overlapping data labels, with possible input parameters dictating a proportional distance to move labels away from each other, or directionality indicators.
