JS API Reference

Welcome to the Highcharts JS Options Reference

These pages outline the chart configuration options, and the methods and properties of Highcharts objects.

Feel free to search this API through the search bar or the navigation tree in the sidebar.

chart.typeDescription

A text description of the chart type.

If the Accessibility module is loaded, this will be included in the description of the chart in the screen reader information region.

Highcharts will by default attempt to guess the chart type, but for more complex charts it is recommended to specify this property for clarity.
