A pie chart is a circular graphic which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion.

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