Welcome to the Highcharts JS (highcharts) 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.


A bubble series is a three dimensional series type where each point renders an X, Y and Z value. Each points is drawn as a bubble where the position along the X and Y axes mark the X and Y values, and the size of the bubble relates to the Z value.

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