How to toggle legend layout in highchart


I am interested to change legend layout on click event as below

<strong>1st</strong> click horizontal - bottom

<strong>2nd</strong> click horizontal top

<strong>3rd</strong> click virtical left

<strong>4th</strong> click virtical right

<strong>Here is</strong> <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/mEf2g/" rel="nofollow">Link to FIDDLE</a>

I don't know how this can be done, this is what I have tried so far.


<script src="http://code.highcharts.com/highcharts.js"></script> <div id="container" style="height: 400px"></div> <input id='legend' type='button' value='toggle legend'>


$(function () { var chart = new Highcharts.Chart({ chart: { renderTo: 'container', zoomType: 'xy', marginLeft: 50, marginBottom: 90 }, yAxis: { reversed: true, //min: 0, //max: 50 }, plotOptions: { series: { stacking: 'normal' } }, xAxis: { opposite: true }, series: [{ name: '01-Jan-2014', data: [ [28, 10], [30, 0] ] }] }); var last = 0; $('#legend').click(function(){ var arr = ['vertical','horizontal']; if(last>arr.length){last=0;} setTimeout(function() { alert(arr[last++]);},10); chart.series[0].update({ legend: { layout: arr[last] }}); }); });


Here's a way to do it <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/bzcu3/" rel="nofollow">here</a>. I hate resorting to setting the internal dirty flags but it seems to work well:

var somePositions = [['center','bottom'], ['center','top'], ['left','middle'], ['right','middle']]; $('#btn').click(function(){ posIdx++; if (posIdx == 4) posIdx = 0; chart.legend.options.align = somePositions[posIdx][0]; chart.legend.options.verticalAlign = somePositions[posIdx][1]; chart.isDirtyLegend = true; chart.isDirtyBox = true; chart.redraw(); });


You need to use tranlsate() function which allows to move SVG elements like legend.

var legend = chart.legend.group; $('#btn').click(function(){ legend.translate(0,0) });
