Add borderDashStyle to bar and column plotOptions
In addition to the current capability of setting borderColor, borderWidth and borderRadius on bar and column plotOptions, it would be helpful to be able to configure a dashStyle for the border.
In our use case, we're drawing a stacked bar chart, and we'd like to display the final stack series as a empty bar (white background) bordered by a red dashed line.
There’s a simple hack you can do to implement it: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/ztRF5/
- dashStyle works in most bar charts (and must be documented)
- no effect in Waterfall charts
- in Mekko it is called borderDashStyle
...found the answer here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26658815/how-to-make-a-dashed-bar-chart-border-in-highcharts
just comment out the first line and it works: http://jsfiddle.net/cristiscu/ztRF5/178/
Is this in the current branch? Or the topic needs an update?
http://jsfiddle.net/cristiscu/ztRF5/177/ - I replaced just the script location and it throws an exception.
It took a minor adjustment to make it work again - the SVG renderer needs to know the borderWidth first in order to apply the dashStyle.

Same as Simon said; it seems like it's supposed to work, but for some reason shows a solid border until mouseover.

I realise this is a bit of an old issue but I would like to do exactly the same thing. The examples provided though show a solid border until moused over. I presume this was not the case in previos versions.
Is there another way to achieve this in the current version?

Very cool! This allowed me to do exactly what I wanted: http://jsfiddle.net/jdmyers/ztRF5/1/
Do you intend to add this as a supported API?
