    • 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

                • 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 :)

                  • data module for database tables

                    data module was a great addition. have been using that pretty much everytime i can covert my data to csv.

                    but having database module to load data from one table would be just awesome.

                      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.

                    • 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).

                        • allow for custom symbols when using bubble chart

                          Allow for custom symbol with bubble chart, such as square triangle etc. Works wondefully with scatter but when you switch to bubble you're forced to used the round ones.

                            • Summary Tables

                              Add support for adding simple data tables inside or outside of a chart. This would be similar to a legend, but contains custom data sets. Currently we use the Highcharts Renderer to render a background rectangle based on the matching chart options and draw the table the same way the legend is drawn outside of the table. It would be nice if there was the option for that datatable to exist under the chart/overlayed on the chart or completely separate from the chart.

                              • Show value in legend

                                Today one big problem is that when we have a Stock chart with around 5 series & data for about 3 years, the tooltip hides important data.
                                It'd be great to have an option to show the values aside the legend items instead of the tooltip like http://www.amcharts.com/stock/multiple-datasets/. That way we can make sure that the values are shown & nothing in the chart area is hidden from the viewer.

                                      • Add Custom Buttons

                                        Include options to set up custom buttons with call-backs to perform certain functionality.

                                        For example, I would love to be able to have a button next to the current print and export buttons that would be used for help/information about the chart.
