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.


The axis labels show the number or category for each tick.

Since v8.0.0: Labels are animated in categorized x-axis with updating data if tickInterval and step is set to 1.

X and Y axis labels are by default disabled in Highmaps, but the functionality is inherited from Highcharts and used on colorAxis, and can be enabled on X and Y axes too.
