jQuery provides a very modern and highly interactive Highcharts plugin for programmers to implement charts for representing or comparing data for web and mobile applications. It’s multi-platform and supports SVG.
You have to download the required files in the working folder so that the programmer can include in the head section of the HTML structure page as implemented in the following programs.
Example 1: The following example demonstrates the horizontal bar graph for different states and its population by using Highcharts plugin.
Example 2: The following example demonstrates the 3D pie charts representing the access of various website by a single user in a particular year by using Highcharts plugin.
Example 3: The above example can be similarly implemented to represent 3D donut pie charts by making simple changes to the jQuery code as follows. The output chart is shown in the below image.
All the charts implemented by using Highcharts plugin can be extended to HighchartTable plugin. With the Highcharts library usage, there exists a way which converts the HTML table data into desired charts.
Download link for including the required files in the head section in addition to the Highchart plugin’s files.
Example 4: The following example demonstrates the very basic HighchartTable plugin usage showing column chart with monthly expenses.
Example 5: The following example demonstrates line chart using HighchartTable plugin.
Example 6: The following example demonstrates bubble chart using Highchart plugin which represents data around 3 dimensions. Bubble charts generally plots graph taking x values, y values and z (size) values. The horizontal x and vertical y are value axes and z represents its size.
Example 7: The following example demonstrates area charts using Highcharts plugin. These are similar to line charts as demonstrated earlier with the difference of visualizing data in volumes.
There are many more beautiful types of charts in the plugin. Programmers can explore and implement according to the application’s requirements.
