Highcharts 3D Column Chart

In the previous chapters, we learned how to setup highcharts library and how to create a chart with required configurations using highcharts library in our webpage. Now, we will learn how to create a 3d column chart using highcharts library with examples.

            <td><input id="alpha" type="range" min="0" max="45" value="15"/> <span id="alpha-value" class="value"></span></td>



            <td>Beta Angle</td>

            <td><input id="beta" type="range" min="-45" max="45" value="15"/> <span id="beta-value" class="value"></span></td>




            <td><input id="depth" type="range" min="20" max="100" value="50"/> <span id="depth-value" class="value"></span></td>






If you observe the above example, we created a 3D column chart using highcharts library with required properties.


When we execute the above highcharts example, we will get the result like as shown below.
