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.


Defines how the labels are be repositioned according to the 3D chart orientation.

  • 'offset': Maintain a fixed horizontal/vertical distance from the tick marks, despite the chart orientation. This is the backwards compatible behavior, and causes skewing of X and Z axes.

  • 'chart': Preserve 3D position relative to the chart. This looks nice, but hard to read if the text isn't forward-facing.

  • 'flap': Rotated text along the axis to compensate for the chart orientation. This tries to maintain text as legible as possible on all orientations.

  • 'ortho': Rotated text along the axis direction so that the labels are orthogonal to the axis. This is very similar to 'flap', but prevents skewing the labels (X and Y scaling are still present).
