A pictorial chart uses vector images to represents the data. The shape of the data point is taken from the path parameter.

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