    Related to this idea, I found a major performance issue with data labels. The default settings for sankey made Highcharts produce empty data labels for the links, resulting in wasted performance on the anti-collision logic.

    This has been fixed in https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/commit/647d870ef152ad694bbbe89a7b2d0603a150e76c and will be part of the next maintenance release.

    Until then, the workaround is to set dataLabels.formatter to a no-op function (return undefined). See it live at http://jsfiddle.net/a6Lgyn2q/ .

    I see, it would be like a variable radius pie with support for zThreshold and negative values, which is currently not supported. See https://www.highcharts.com/docs/chart-and-series-types/variable-radius-pie-chart

    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/

    2017-09-11
    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).


    2014

    Here’s a proof of concept of how you can draw a table programmatically: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/

    I added a study for integration with Handsontable, see https://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/library/pure/highcharts/highcharts/tree/master/samples/highcharts/studies/summary-table-handsontable/. It can also be extended to other third party grid components. It gives you sorting and formatting etc from the third party libraries.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Yes, like this: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/3/. Or did you have something else in mind?

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    @Anonymous
    To hide the chart itself you could always use display: none: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/4/

    Thanks for writing!

    I'm not sure what you mean by this... "avoid filtering series on the main chart". Can you elaborate, or provide sketches?

    Currently there isn't a way to do this by options, so you need to sort your data appropriately before applying them to Highcharts. Depending on your data, sorting is quite easy: https://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/s9mbrdaj/

    Thank you for your idea! An obvious place to put it would be under the time options structure. https://api.highcharts.com/highcharts/time

    Thank you for the idea! It can probably be achieved today by analyzing the data up front and setting an appropriate break to the axis options.

    Not sure what you mean by "chartbook format" - do you mean the dashboard/table layout? If so, it can easily be done by adding mulitple Highcharts charts to any HTML layout.

    I am not sure I understand what you mean. Consider http://jsfiddle.net/p49ob603/. When you resize that chart (by dragging the splitter in the middle of jsFiddle), the chart resizes, but the text size is constant at its given pixel value.

    Do you mean it should be fixed relative to the chart size? Maybe you want to use a relative font size unit? http://jsfiddle.net/yjrzdpn4/

    Ok, takk for info! Eg er fortsatt ikkje sikker på om det trengst ein option her - for eksempel kan du reversere colors-arrayen ved å gjere colors.reverse() i options-settet ditt.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    I can only advice you on how Highmaps works, not your UI, but I can see two possible ways of dealing with this for you:

    1. Apply the color set dynamically based on how many data classes there are. See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/vs9twuLb/ for a proof of concept.

    2. Set the colors directly on the data classes: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/vs9twuLb/1/

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    I'm not sure what you mean by reversing the selected colorscheme - are you using some kind of GUI on top of Highmaps? Can we see a demo?

    Also, for dataclasses, this is how they currently work. If you have two data classes, the chart uses either one or the other color, with no interpolation in between. A demo of what you're trying to achieve would be nice her too.

    Using separate X axes looks promising. Also by setting the colorByPoint option to false you get one color per series: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/znm6f89r/120/

    I am not sure how or whether we can align the font sizes between series - my colleague will come back to you about that.

    It's hard to say without seeing your actual code - what I can say is that the point configurations must be objects, then you set that marker configuration on the last of the objects.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Thanks for using Highcharts!

    > on a lot of our linecharts the point density is so great that the chart becomes unreadable, but not dense enough for the "null" option to kick in and remove the markers.

    Does this mean we could solve your case by adding an option for when to remove the markers? Currently they are removed when the closest distance between two points is less than twice the marker radius, i.e. before markers start overlapping. We could easily add an option to increase the threshold. Then if we add a single marker in the cases when they are auto-removed, it would meet your requirement?

    Thanks for using Highcharts! You still need the plugin for this. Do you have a case where it's not working as expected?

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    It's not included in Highcharts yet. There are still an issue with how to handle cases when one of the axes' threshold is not in the scale: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/gkf9o1vh/.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Bar series per se don't seem to pose a problem: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/v44tf7zy/.

    Also, I have fixed the "Maximum call stack size exceeded" error.

    @Genís Días this also fixes your case: https://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/8dbfhhkp/3/

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Yes, it looks that way from the jsFiddle demo.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    @Ronny It will not work with fixed tick positions, because we need to be able to modify the ticks in order to align the axes. Currently it only runs on the second axis. In order to make it run both ways, we need to do some restructuring and make the whole logic recursive, because when the first axis is handled, we don't know the extremes of the second one.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    @Lukasz Currently you can't set both, as the alignThreshold plugin overwrites the alignTicks setting. But in general, if you use a smaller tickPixelInterval, the alignment gets better because it is easier to find an axis resolution that fits both data sets: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/y6pbqk6q/2/

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    It's still not perfect, as it disregards the tickPixelInterval setting.

    For your solution about setting min and max explicitly. The docs explains why Highcharts adds padding to your setting: http://api.highcharts.com/highcharts#yAxis.min

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    @Luis Miguel: You need to supply a threshold. Lines don't have a threshold by default. http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/jrXQe/5/

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    The difference is that line series don't have a threshold by default, so you need to threshold: 0 on the line series. I've fixed this in the plugin so when no threshold is given, 0 is assumed.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    We appreciate the many votes - I'm afraid the train has left for 3.0, and we will have some catching up to do now before adding new features.

    That would be a bit like the standard, grouped columns, right? Or do you mean something different? https://www.highcharts.com/demo/column-basic

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Yes the devs at Black Label are probably happy for that. And you should post the issue at https://github.com/blacklabel/grouped_categories/issues so it is registered.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    We have sent a pull request for this issue, see https://github.com/blacklabel/grouped_categories/pull/13. We will ask the owners to pull or to give us collaboration rights.

    It looks pretty similar to me, see http://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/library/pure/highcharts/highcharts/tree/master/samples/stock/xaxis/crosshair-label/

    Do you mean that the entire side of the Y axis label should be an arrow?

    Thanks Martin!

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Hi Martin,

    My coworker added a different approach, that uses the tooltip.formatter to look for nearby points. It would probably work better for your case. See oysteinmoseng's comment on https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/issues/647.

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    Hi Peter,
    Currently we don't have plans to do this internally. Is there any specific reason you don't want to do it like in the demo below?

    AdminTorstein Hønsi (CPO, Founder, Highcharts JS) commented  · 

    It's not currently supported out of the box, but one way to do it would be to write your own interpolation function and add an interpolated line. I set up a demo here: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/F4e2Y/

    I'm not sure what you mean... Can you elaborate with an example?

    Here's an empty series. No line is shown: http://jsfiddle.net/vqq6rrtr/

    An empty chart will render the chart title, credits and stuff that is not related to the data. If that is not desired, you should defer creation of the chart until the data is ready.
