Chart types

Highcharts support a range of different chart types so data can be displayed in a meaningful way. Highcharts supports a long list of different chart types, among others line, spline, area, areaspline, column, bar, pie, scatter, gauge, arearange, areasplinerange and columnrange. For the full list of available chart types, see the API for Highcharts, Highcharts Stock, Highcharts Maps and Highcharts Gantt respectively.

To set a default chart type use:

chart: {
type: 'line'

Several chart types can also be combined in one chart using the type attribute on series to set different chart types for each series:

series: [{
type: 'line'
data: []
type: 'column'
data: []

See Combining chart types for more information on how to combine chart types.
