  1. xAxis tick labels overlapping handling

    Hi,
    Now we have automatic xAxis labels rotation or overlapping handling.
    But

    1.When I generate xAxis labels by myself with tickPositions - then auto-positioning(overlap handling) is not working. Can you make labels autopositioning work for custom tickPositions please?

    2. One more approach - if custom labels overlap - then show '...'(or some other filler) but show full labels on zoom In.

    • Bubble chart- Data label positioning at the bottom

      As of now, If the bubble is near the x-axis, by default the data label is positioned on top of the bubble. Our requirement is to align within the plot area (above the x-axis) either to the left or right of the bubble.

      Thanks In Advance

      • Symmetric waterfall chart

        In some applications there are naturally two data "faces" that must match, say supply and demand, with a finite, unequal number of producers and users. A standard waterfall chart can easily show the individual producer and total change in supply from one period to the next, but it would be of great value to see supply and demand changes directly compared.

        One way is to imagine the Highcharts population pyramid chart using waterfall charts on either side, with a common x axis, but separate y axes. The sum of changes to demand would typically be equal to the negative sum…

          • Make tooltip text selectable + suitable html generator for html tooltips + continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave event

            As for me tooltip functionality is quite restrictive and not very convenient for now (5.0.14).
            1. I cannot select text on tooltip.
            I found some examples where we just copy original tooltip, show it and then do e.preventPropagation for mouseDown, mouseup and mousemove events on tooltip area.
            but maybe it can be done by some parameters?

            2. Suitable html generator for html tooltip - it is inconvenient to generate html with concatenation of string na respective params. And hard to apply event listeners on elements of html-tooltip. Maybe some helper functions to add?

            3. continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave…

            • render the dataClasses legend like the gradient legend

              Check out the legend on they NYFed site

              https://www.newyorkfed.org/data-and-statistics/data-visualization/community-credit-profiles#inclusion

              The dataClasses are joined together and the arrow pointer points to where in the data class a specific point lives.

              I have implemented similar code but it would be nice if it was an option by default.

              • Waterfall Chart with Pre-Aggregated Interim / Final Balance

                Currently the Waterfall Chart can create Interim Balances, but those are calculated as part of the chart.
                In case the actual data set already provides those interim balances and Final Balances, those can not be leveraged because as soon as the Interim / Final Balance flag is set, the actual data value is being ignored.
                There should be an option to decide if an existing entry from the data set should be visually represented as Interim / Final Balance.

                  • Position tick labels between ticks on a date-time x-axis

                    In a chart with data plotted on and datetime x-axia i would like to position tick labels between ticks rather than on ticks. An when i zoom they still appear in the center to the right of it's tick.

                    for example i have a tick on August 1st and another on September 1st and my date formate is MMM. I would like to see 'Aug' centered between the August 1st tick and the September 1st tick

                      This would definately be a nice feature. I believe we would need two types of label placement on datetime axes. Interval labels would be placed between ticks. For example a month name. But if the interval spans two months, like August-September, the label would have to be placed on the 1st of August.

                    • To add Filter Option on Categories.(We can hide whole categories by selecting categories from multi select drop-down )

                      In Stacked column chart, Consider,

                      I have 3 main categories, i.e. Product1, Product2, Product3..

                      Each Product has 2 sub categories i.e. Open Bugs, Resolved Bugs..

                      Bugs are raised by Robert and David are the our Legends..

                      Now..I am suggesting to provide an option Like drop - down (May be multi select) which will contain all sub categories i.e. Open Bugs and Resolved Bugs..

                      So if user selects any one of them..charts will display all data for that selected value..in above example if user selects Open Bugs option the all product will hide data related to Resolved bugs and will show…

                      • Add a more detailed map for China.

                        I would like to request a more detailed map for China. Current map is at provincial level, which is fine for general purposes. But for some finer analyses, a city level resolution is very much desirable.

                        • Dynamically arrange column chart high to low or low to high

                          It is good to have the functionality to auto arrange series data in high to low or low to a high value so graph looks understandable when especially there are too many bar/columns. Also, It would be a good idea to short in ascending/descending order by the group.

                            When Numeric Symbols are applied to axis, the tooltip should have a option to automatically use the abrreviation as well.

                                  • Stacked Area chart for irregular interval data points

                                    When you create a stacked area chart, the areas only stack properly when the data points are at even intervals. This is often not the case, and so the data displays as points and pieces of area (http://jsfiddle.net/ze5fx67d/).

                                    It would be ideal to have the ability to stack values despite irregular intervals, stacking based on the closest "nearby" data point, but currently it fails to stack at all.

                                      • Do we have option to generate Smith Charts?

                                        We have a requirement to generate Smith Charts. Can Highcharts support Smith Charts?
