  2. Add broken line segments for null values

    If the 'y' value of a point is null for a line type of graph, then option should be available to either automatically switch to a dashed line or not to display the line entirely till 'y' gets set to non-null value

  3. x zoom for multiseries data

    I have four series of data, and each series only has one data point. I would like to render these data with x-dimension zoom ability as good as 4 data points in one series. If this is a duplicate topic, I am really sorry, because I could not find a similar one.

    Here is the fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/yMSCZ/8/

    I was trying to approach it by adding dummy x value to each data point from each series: http://jsfiddle.net/yMSCZ/9/ But it did not work out.

    I understand in the first fiddle, HC will treat all the four points with the same x index,…

  4. Custom approximation function

    I would like to have an approximation function in which we can access all the information from the points instead of just the y values. This allows me to not only decide how to group but also an ability to capture information from all the points into the grouped point.

  5. Require scrolling feature

    If I tend to display huge volume of data, chart GUI is not stretching to accomodate all contents, instead it reduces their dimensions to incorporate them within given area. This makes chart unreadable, also leads to overlapping of data during display. It will be great if chart length grows horizontally on more data and provides a scroll bar

  7. Exporting charts just by right clicking on them

    Hi

    I would like to suggest a small improvement concerning exporting. At the moment, user that wants to save a highchart has to click on a download icon and choose an option from a dropdown.
    A small but great improvement would be to do the same, just by right-clicking on a chart.

    You just right click on a chart -> save as -> desired format and voila!
    I am not sure if sucha feature is possible to implement, but it would be neat to have this! :)

  8. Provide support for creating HighCharts using Web Worker

    Sometimes, creating and rendering charts hampers the performance of application. So, it is a smart idea to create and render chart using the web worker. For details visit: http://forum.highcharts.com/highstock-usage/does-highstock-library-work-with-web-worker-t35660/

  9. Different attributes for inside, outside and separator borders of pie chart

    For the slices of a pie chart, allow the user to specify border attributes differently for inside, outside and separator borders. I would like to specify no border for the outside and inside of a donut chart, but still have borders between the slices.

  10. Ability to persist tooltip post mouse leave.

    Would like the ability to keep the tooltip shown after the users mouse has left the chart. Pretty easy to add.

    Add option tooltip.sticky

    Current 3.2.0.
    Line: 1613. Add sticky: false.
    Line: 8672. Add && !chart.options.tooltip.sticky.
    Line: 8618. Wrap with if statement (!chart.options.tooltip.sticky).

  11. Auto-PlotLines for Min, AVG and Max values

    Auto-Plotlines for aggregate functions like Min, AVG and Max based on the series values.

    This would be accessible via the series or plotline objects and would draw the lines automatically (ui default properties for each plotline defined as well and not null) for the aggregates on the values of the series.

  12. Sunburst chart: Option to show series data labels outside the leaf level nodes with connectors

    Currently, it is observed that Sunburst chart series data labels when shown, overlap or only the show/hide behavior of data labels can be achieved through the formatter function.

    Refer the Sunburst chart's series data labels on the following link:- http://www.dundas.com/support/blog/sunburst-charts-homerun-or-groundout

    Expected behavior is to configure the series data labels in such a way that if the arc size of a node is less than a particular value, instead of hiding the data label, show it outside the leaf level nodes of the chart, also adjust the distance of data labels and its connectors from the chart.

  13. Restore "target" option in the "credits" configuration

    It would be most useful to restore the "target" option in the "credits" configuration so that when the user clicks on the credit text (usually in the lower right angle of the graph), the link can be opened in a new page instead of the current one.

  14. Set off negative against positive values in stacked charts

    It should be possible to sum up negative and positive values in the same stack (like excel does for area charts by default).

    Currently positive and negative values are stacked seperately above and below the x-axis. To keep BC and keep the old behaviour as well a new stacking mode should be added IMHO.

  15. Support for   (non-breaking space) for legends, labels and categories

    It would be great to control line breaks completely using non-breaking spaces (&nbsp;), <br> tags and soft hyphens (&shy;).

  18. HIghcharts js for mobile

    highcharts is a litter larger for mobile,should we have a mobile edition? highcharts should not rely on other frameworks as well,such as jquery.

  19. add category label mouse events

    Events triggered when a user clicks/hovers/etc a category label (xAxis labels).

    I would use this to provide more in depth information about the label clicked. For instance, charting years in xAxis, user clicks 2012, should bring up a menu with additional options for that year

  20. Allow images to be included in axis labels

    Provide some way of including an image in an axis label. For example, I may want to prefix the axis labels with an icon.

    I've tried including HTML in the axis label and using axis.labels.formatter to add image HTML into the label. Neither worked. I've seen reference to using renderer for doing this, but I haven't been able to find an example.
