      • Angular Gauges

        Angular Gauges such as the ones on http://www.fusioncharts.com/widgets/gallery.asp (in the top group).

        This would allow people to writing financial systems or any kind of alert type of systems to monitor how far away they are from a goal or how close they are to triggering alerts.

        Prime example is in the financial world: You set a Budget of $100,000 with a $20,000 threshold for a project, the gauge stays in the Green zone when spendings are below 100k, when its between 100 and 120 it is in the yellow zone (e.g. time to be concerned) and above 120k it would…

            Treemaps is currently under development, but here is a small taste of what you can expect in the future.

            At the moment there is four algorithms implemented to get users up and running quickly. These are the SliceAndDice, Stripes, Squarified, and Strip algorithm. By extending the series object, the users can also add their own algorithms for layouting the data.
            A levels object is introduced to let the users set wanted options to a specific level, this is displayed in some of the demos. The levels object is great for using a mix of several algorithms in the same chart.

            Demos:
            - http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/sqxqq1ry/
            - http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VUrr9/
            - http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/tm720ufm/

            Full stock charts like the Google Finance charts, with scrolling, panning and master-details navigation.

              • Allow navigator to have multiple data series

                Please allow navigator to hold multiple data series. I had a request recently to convert a very large data set into separate categories, so that they could be deselected via the legend, but now I don't get the set represented in the navigator window, because it only will hold one series. And with large data, building one composite set will be too much overhead.

                  • implement dynamic font size

                    Currently the highcharts have fixed font size, in the javascript many references are found to hard-coded font-sizes of e.g. 9px and 11px. Instead I would prefer that Highcharts use relative font-size (and paddings etc.) like 1em or 0.8em based on the font-size of the container. This would allow to print large-scale graphs on high-resolutions screens and small graphs on tablets.

                        • Allow irregular datetime xAxis (Note: irregular point intervals are already supported!)

                          Before voting on this feature, please make sure you understand that this does not apply to irregular data, but irregular axis. Specifying irregular data intervals is straight forward. See http://highslide.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9222.

                          Instead of fixed intervals for a datetime xAxis, implement support for specific corresponding datetime-value pairs in case there is no constant logging but sporadic or unsteady input data (e.g. temperature logging only if value has actually changed)

                              • Automatic line break for title and legend labels

                                Currently titles are always rendered in one line. (Although it is possible to use a br Tag, but it is hard to calculate where to insert a br and the rest of the chart is not automatically shifted.)
                                It would be great to have an automatic line break for long titles and/or long legend labels and an auto shift of the other chart content.

                                • Allow irregular time series to skip nights and weekends

                                  It should be possible to remove sufficiently long empty time spans, such as nights and weekends, from the datetime xAxis. This is currently possible by using the "ordinal" feature, but in that case you need to have an evenly spaced time series (for example, sampled every minute or every hour).

                                  Skipping empty time should also be possible for an arbitrarily timestamped time series. A simple way to implement this would be to set a time threshold. If this threshold is exceeded with no new points, the axis is cut and resumed from the next data point.

                                  This, along with other…

                                    • Threshold option for colors

                                      Threshold option to set apply different colors , ideally to show negative values or values below target.
                                      eg. http://people.iola.dk/olau/flot/examples/thresholding.html

                                        • Support android as well as iDevices

                                          I'm not sure if this is a big one or not, but I know that Android uses a form of WebKit for the built-in browser so it can't be too far removed from the iPhone / iPad

                                          NB - technically you can install Opera or another browser, but most people don't
