Highcharts: Bar inside of a stacked bar


I want to create a chart with a bar inside of a stacked bar as seen on the image bellow. <a href="http://i61.tinypic.com/317axx4.jpg" rel="nofollow">Chart http://i61.tinypic.com/317axx4.jpg</a>

I managed to put the column inside of the column but, I can't make it work for the bar. How can I put the bar inside of the stacked bar?

<a href="http://jsfiddle.net/danijelf/zs6juetp/1/" rel="nofollow">My code - JsFiddle</a>

var chart = new Highcharts.Chart({ chart: { renderTo:'container', }, title: { text: 'Test %' }, xAxis: { categories: ['2014', '2013', '2012', '2011'] }, yAxis: { opposite: true, labels: { format: '{value}%', }, }, plotOptions: { series: { stacking: 'normal' }, column: { stacking: 'percent' } }, legend: { enabled: false }, series: [{ name: 'red', type: 'bar', data: [70, 70, 70, 70], color: 'rgba(253, 155, 155, 1)', pointPadding: 0.1, pointPlacement: -0.2, stack: 'bar' }, { name: 'yellow', type: 'bar', data: [5, 5, 5, 5], color: 'rgba(255, 255, 153, 1)', pointPadding: 0.1, pointPlacement: -0.2, stack: 'bar' }, { name: 'green', type: 'bar', data: [25, 25, 25, 25], color: 'rgba(204, 255, 153, 1)', pointPadding: 0.1, pointPlacement: -0.2, stack: 'bar' }, { name: 'Value', type: 'bar', data: [35, 30, 25, 20], color: 'rgba(126,86,134,.9)', pointPadding: 0.35, pointPlacement: -0.2, dataLabels: { enabled: true, format: '{y}%' }, }] });

Any help appreciated.


You could set grouping to false, so all stacks will be placed on top of each other - overlap each other.

Example: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/zs6juetp/2/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/zs6juetp/2/</a>

plotOptions: { series: { grouping: false ...

It looks like you're making a bullet graph.

I have examples of this here:

<ul><li><a href="http://jsfiddle.net/jlbriggs/UGs2E/17/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/jlbriggs/UGs2E/17/</a></li> </ul>


plotOptions:{ bar:{ grouping: false, shadow:false, borderWidth:0, pointPadding:.25, groupPadding:0 }, scatter:{ marker:{ symbol:'line', lineWidth:3, radius:9, lineColor:'#333' } } }

Also uses a function to extend the marker object for the target line, on a scatter series:

Highcharts.Renderer.prototype.symbols.line = function(x, y, width, height) { return ['M',x ,y + width / 2,'L',x+height,y + width / 2]; };
