Welcome to the Highcharts JS (highcharts) Options Reference

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

Arc diagram series is a chart drawing style in which the vertices of the chart are positioned along a line on the Euclidean plane and the edges are drawn as a semicircle in one of the two half-planes delimited by the line, or as smooth curves formed by sequences of semicircles.

In TypeScript the type option must always be set.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all arcdiagram series are defined in plotOptions.arcdiagram.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        arcdiagram: {
            // shared options for all arcdiagram series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'arcdiagram'
