  2. Highmaps: Map Collection does not have world map with disputed areas

    The world map provided in Map Collection does not show disputed areas of countries. It would be really helpful if the disputed area of Jammu & Kashmir state is shown as part of India in world.json

    India with Jammu & Kashmir:

  4. Legend tooltip

    On hover it could display another tooltip which we can describe the serie.
    I tried to do it but there're some fixes to do.

  5. Add grouping in chart legend

    Would be good to have grouping in legend so user can play with group as well as with legend item by clicking on it to show/hide items.
    Click on group should work as click on each item in the group.

    Could look like in this picture: http://forum.highcharts.com/resources/image/4056

  6. 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.

  7. Add an event for legend item hovering

    You might add mouseover/mouseout events to legend items. This event should provide the index of the legend item.

    That gives the developer more control about what to do when hovering legend items and gives him the control to devide whether a tooltip should be shown or the series should be highlighted or whatever.

    A common use case might be to show tooltips when hovering legend items --> http://jsfiddle.net/ArmRM/481/

  10. Activity gauge Chart like on Apple Watch

    It would be a good idea to overlap the value of over 100%. So it is possible to display the value.
    My idea would be to overlap the circle like on Apple Watch.

    Apple Watch activity chart: https://www.wareable.com/media/images/2017/06/acvtiivyt-1496340445-hoFP-column-width-inline.jpg

    I think that might be useful for some users.

  12. Set Axis's top and height at runtime

    In order to display two panes (price pane at top and volume pane at bottom) correctly when chart's container resizing, it would allow to set axis's top and height at runtime.

    Or another way you can do is to set axis's top and height value in percentage unit.

  13. Add minPointLength for CLOSE to zero values but not for value exactly 0

    We have bar and column charts with data of very distant values. Like 0.5 next to 8000000. So highcharts scales itself in the way that this small values are invisible without zooming.
    There is an attribute minPointLength (http://api.highcharts.com/highcharts#plotOptions.column.minPointLength) that makes such samll values visible. But the problem is that value 0 is also rendered then. So we would like to have. minPointLenght behavior for close to zero values but NOT for value 0.

  14. Allow highchartmore to be "init" several time without bug

    Posted as an issue here https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/issues/7729

    In modern app, highcharts and highcharts more are loaded as module and potentially multiple time, but highcharts more cannot be "init" several time without breaking highcharts :(

  15. Parallel Coordinates

    Add a parallel coordinates chart. For example: http://exposedata.com/parallel/

    or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_coordinates

    This would allow for quicker analysis of data typically found in tables.

  16. Add a 'startOnMin' option to the axis properties

    See: http://highslide.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7904
    and:http://highslide.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10642

    Add an option so that the precise start point of the grid lines/ axis labels can be specified

  17. Support of Network diagrams. Much similar to the Topology diagrams in Networking world

    Addition of support to Network diagrams would make this utility perfect and complete.

  18. series.compare should switch to absolute values for single series in a graph

    We have a user requirement, inspired from Yahoo/Google finance, ie:
    In case of single series( read first series, eg stock) they would like to see actual values on Y axis.
    but whenever a new series is added they would like to switch to compare percent mode and vice-versa.

  20. I suggest to add some very common buy/sell indicators for stock charting, in particular the treatment for "moving average curve"

    Buy / Sell Indicators:
    1) Moving average curve by adopting historical close price (say moving average of past 10 / 20/ 50 / 100 /250 trading days, i.e. days with trade) and the curve should be plotted as a smooth curve instead of ladder-like flat cuve;
    2) RSI (relatvie strength index to show oversold or overbought)
    3) MACD, etc.
