Syncronised Annotation between 2 charts

Thu Jan 06, 2022 1:54 am

Hello,
Can I know if it is possible to synchronize a drawing from the current chart to other charts?

Example scenarios:
1) Creating a new annotation.
Draw a Segment Line in Chart 1.
Chart 2 will see the line being drawn in real-time.

2) Moving the annotation.
Shifting the Segment Line in Chart 1 will move the synchronized Segment Line in Chart 2, vice versa.

3) Modify the annotation (eg. different start and end point, resize, etc)
Modify the Segment Line's end point in Chart 1 will modify the synchronized Segment Line in Chart 2 accordingly, vice versa.

4) Deleting the annotation.
Delete the Segment Line in Chart 2.
The Segment Line in both Chart 1 and Chart 2 will be removed.

Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Thank you.

Kind regards,
Jacky

Hello,

Thanks for contacting us with your question!

There is no such functionality in Highcharts API and it would be beyond the scope of support on our forum.

However, I've created the example of synchronized adding of Segment Line, which you can try to extend by the remaining functionalities by yourself.
If you need help with your implementation and If you have a valid Advantage license you can contact us directly on the Skype support channel: https://www.highcharts.com/blog/support/ (tab "Chat With Us"). Otherwise, you can also contact the Black Label company that specializes in Highcharts custom projects. See official Black Label site: https://blacklabel.pl .

Demo:

API reference:

If you think this functionality should be officially implemented, you can post this idea in our user voice https://highcharts.uservoice.com/ or create a feature request on github.

Feel free to ask any further questions,
Regards!

Hello Magdalena,

Thank you for the demo, it is part of what I was looking for.

Aside from that, I just recently purchased the license and can we follow up on this question via Email/Skype?
