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
  • 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"  
            }
        }
