Automated scale breaks
The implementation of scale breaks when there are large differences between the high and low values of the data being plotted.
A sample can be found in the below link, implemented in the old Dundas Charting tool.
The Highcharts feature yAxis.breaks is useful only when the difference between data points is known or when the data is small. The data is dynamic in our case and can be large and the breaks need to be automatically drawn considering not a single series but with respect to all the series present in the chart.
Thank you for the reply. I am trying to add a break on load event of the chart after analyzing the incoming data but the breaks shown using plotlines do not appear in few cases. As the data is large and varying each time, an algorithm is required so that it works for all cases. Could you please let me know if and when this feature can be implemented in Highcharts? I will be happy to provide the sample/test data for implementation.
Thank you for the idea! It can probably be achieved today by analyzing the data up front and setting an appropriate break to the axis options.
