Added a study for integration with Handsontable, a third party grid component: https://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/library/pure/highcharts/highcharts/tree/master/samples/highcharts/studies/summary-table-handsontable/
The data table is now a feature of the data-export module. See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/3/. Notice how it updates as the chart is updated (for example by showing/hiding series).
Here’s a proof of concept of how you can draw a table programmatically: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/Christopher commented
It's nice to know someone's accomplished this, even if in a roundabout way.
It'd be great if it were an actual feature. A single bar on a small chart with a relatively much larger value within a series can prevent other bars from displaying, which in turn stops you from being able to view their tool-tips, which prevents you from knowing what data was supposed to be displayed in those bars (and giving a quick graphical overview of data is pointless when you can't distinguish between most of the data points on the graph due to an 'outlier').Christopher supported this idea ·
