plotOptions.variablepie

A variable pie series is a two dimensional series type, where each point renders an Y and Z value. Each point is drawn as a pie slice where the size (arc) of the slice relates to the Y value and the radius of pie slice relates to the Z value. Requires highcharts-more.js.

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