Highcharts Javascript API

  1. Add ability to change the "look at" point in 3d plots, or alter the default to use the center of the plot

    Currently the view is aimed at the center X and Y, but min Z.

    With deep 3d scatter plots, this leads to parts of the scatterplot being invisible at certain rotations (eg. after rotating 90 deg, half of the view is empty, other half contains points).

    As an alternative, I would suggest changing the default for 3d scatterplots to take z depth into account (aim at center Z).

  3. Conditional Colors Minimum Maximum

    Example: 20 shops with the same 20 products, 3D bar charts, lowest price per product green, highest price per product red, others default color, e.g. grey

    Result: which shops have lowest prices.

    It should be possible that minimum and maximum can have a range (e.g. +- 3 %) to have the green or red color.

  5. Error bar tooltips

    I would like the option to show a the numbers for a single data point and its associated margin of error (M.o.E.) bar in a single unified tooltip, as in:

    [ Apples: 67.5 (M.o.E.: 63.4 - 71.6) ]

    I would like this rather than having the data points and margins of error on separate tooltips or having data for all series on the same shared tooltip.

  6. Dynamically arrange column chart high to low or low to high

    It is good to have the functionality to auto arrange series data in high to low or low to a high value so graph looks understandable when especially there are too many bar/columns. Also, It would be a good idea to short in ascending/descending order by the group.

  7. Prevent the cursor from chaging to an I-beam when mouseover text (eg: axis labels)

    By adding the pointer-events="none" attribute to the chart's <text> elements you can cause the cursor to NOT change to the I-beam when the user mouses over stuff like axis labels and such.
    Little stuff likis GREATLY improves the professional appearance of the chart.

  13. Symmetric waterfall chart

    In some applications there are naturally two data "faces" that must match, say supply and demand, with a finite, unequal number of producers and users. A standard waterfall chart can easily show the individual producer and total change in supply from one period to the next, but it would be of great value to see supply and demand changes directly compared.

    One way is to imagine the Highcharts population pyramid chart using waterfall charts on either side, with a common x axis, but separate y axes. The sum of changes to demand would typically be equal to the negative sum…

  14. Shared Tooltip (Against Y axis)

    I'd like to be able to have a shared tool-tip use the y-axis value to group by and show the x-axis values shared for that y-value. This comes up when depicting a percentile chart with 1-100th percentile on the y-axis (as is traditional) . I could not find a way to do it.

  17. a property to change height/width of the small scrollbar-buttons

    We are using a touchscreen.
    At highchart there are two small buttons over the scrollbarbutton.

    http://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/jquery/1.7.2/highslide-software/highcharts.com/tree/master/samples/stock/scrollbar/height/

    I am not able to change the dimensions of this small buttons which are used to change the timeselection.
    This property can also be combined with the dimension of the scrollbar { height: XX, width: XX}

  18. Implement method for disabling legend.navigation

    We can use "legend.useHTML=true" to disable legend navigation, i.e. remove the scrolling of data serie's names in the legend box.

    The docs (http://api.highcharts.com/highcharts#legend.navigation) say "When legend.useHTML is enabled, navigation is disabled.". But disabling navigation on the chart legend should instead be a method call or a property we can set to true or false.

  19. add a `dashStyle` that can show the direction the line is going

    When showing a line on scatter chart it can be hard to tell where the line started and where it ended.

    Having a dashStyle option that was similar to plotOptions.scatter.dashStyle = 'dot' except that instead of a dot it was a rotated triangle that pointed in the direction the line was going would be awesome.

    I saw some hacks for turning the entire line into one long arrow but that isn't what I was looking for.

  20. In a bar chart, can we insert elements between bars?

    It's another attempt at visualizing funnels.

    What I ultimately want to get is this: http://imm.io/Is2h

    Is it possible with highcharts or does someone know the library that does this?
