Gauges are circular plots displaying one or more values with a dial pointing to values along the perimeter.

In TypeScript the type option must always be set.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all gauge series are defined in plotOptions.gauge.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        gauge: {
            // shared options for all gauge series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'gauge'
