Welcome to theHighcharts JSOptions Reference

These pages outline the chart configuration options, and the methods and properties of Highcharts objects.

Feel free to search thisAPIthrough the search bar or the navigation tree in the sidebar.


The loading options control the appearance of the loading screen that covers the plot area on chart operations. This screen only appears after an explicit call tochart.showLoading(). It is a utility for developers to communicate to the end user that something is going on, for example while retrieving new data via an XHR connection. The "Loading..." text itself is not part of this configuration object, but part of thelangobject.
