Bullet Charts from HTML Table?

Thu Jan 13, 2022 9:52 pm

Is it possible to render a bullet chart from an HTML table?

I've been able to do it with all of the basic chart types (bar, column, sparkline, pie, line), and bullet chart is the last on my proof-of-concept list, but this is the first one where the implementation involves plotbands or targets that I've seen.

Some reference URLs I've been using:

Bullet Graph example

Thank you for any help!

Alternately, if that's too big of an ask, are there any examples where the source data for a bullet chart is some kind of csv or single data source, rather than the hardcoded one here, I would appreciate that.

Hi whiskerwing,

Thanks for contacting us with your question.

HTML table can be used to build any series. All you have to do is make sure that data fit format specified in API. Here you can find information about data format required for bullet chart: https://api.highcharts.com/highcharts/s ... ullet.data

As you can see, it requires at least two values, y and target.
Demo: https://jsfiddle.net/BlackLabel/hLw7bs2c/

Highcharts try to parse and fit your data automatically, but in some cases it is not possible and you need to do it yourself. In such cases complete and parsed callback functions come in really handy.

Feel free to ask any further questions.
