Highcharts Activity Gauge 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 activity gauge chart using highcharts library with examples.

Highcharts Activity Gauge Chart Example

Following is the example of creating an activity gauge chart by setting the required chart properties using highcharts library.

If you observe the above example, we created an activity gauge chart by using highcharts library with required properties.

 

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