Plot Types

Plot refers to a line in a line chart, a column in a column chart, area in an area chart, etc.

FusionTime supports the following plot types:

  • Line
  • Column
  • Stacked Column
  • Grouped Column
  • Area
  • Stacked Area
  • Smooth Area
  • Spline
  • Step Line
  • Candlestick
  • OHLC

By default, the chart renders with a line plot. However, you can specify the plot type in a chart, using the plotType property inside the yAxis object. Refer to the code below:

yAxis: {
    "plot": {
        "value": "Sales",
        "type": "column"
