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 Venn diagram displays all possible logical relations between a collection of different sets. The sets are represented by circles, and the relation between the sets are displayed by the overlap or lack of overlap between them. The venn diagram is a special case of Euler diagrams, which can also be displayed by this series type.

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