Highcharts Dual Axes, Line and 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 combination chart by combining the multiple charts like dual axes, line and column charts using highcharts library with examples.

Highcharts Dual Axes, Line and Column Chart Example

Following is the example of creating a combination chart (dual axes, line, and column) by setting the required chart properties using highcharts library.

If you observe the above example, we created a combination chart by combining the multiple charts like dual axes, line and column charts using highcharts library with required properties.

 

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