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.


When the tooltip is shared, the entire plot area will capture mouse movement or touch events. Tooltip texts for series types with ordered data (not pie, scatter, flags etc) will be shown in a single bubble. This is recommended for single series charts and for tablet/mobile optimized charts.

See also tooltip.split, that is better suited for charts with many series, especially line-type series. The tooltip.split option takes precedence over tooltip.shared.
