Would love to have linear gauges like this:
You can create linear gauges from columns or scatter charts with one single data value: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/9ybLv5je/.
More examples of linear gauges here http://www.fusioncharts.com/explore/gauges/
A thermometer is just a column measuring a single data point.
The idea that a chart measuring temperature should include a graphic representation of the reservoir for the liquid in an analog thermometer is a pretty odd one...
Just for the record :)
Is highchart support linear gauge type yet?
Thank you so much. This helps me out a lot. Your quick response is greatly appreciated.
The one drawback to Highcharts gauges is that they don't currently have anything resembling a thermometer gauge in their library. This gauge would be very helpful to display temperature changes, etc.
