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.


Wind barbs are a convenient way to represent wind speed and direction in one graphical form. Wind direction is given by the stem direction, and wind speed by the number and shape of barbs.

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