Chapter 2. Column and Bar Charts

In the previous chapter, we discussed Highcharts and its features. We also took a look at the files that come with the package and then constructed a simple column chart to get started with Highcharts development.

In this chapter, we will examine column and bar charts more thoroughly and utilize the Highcharts API to make a variety of charts with different configuration options. To be more specific, in this chapter, we will:

  • Take an overview of column charts
  • Stack basic column charts to make data visually more understandable
  • Learn how to configure charts to drill down to more detailed charts
  • Adjust ticks and other chart elements
  • Create bar charts
  • Configure bar charts with negative stacks
