The latest major update brings new exciting out-of-the-box features to our award-winning JavaScript charting library product family — AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyGantt, and AnyMap.

New JS Chart Features

Now you can limit the number of characters shown in chart labels. This new option gives you easier control over the display of your charts.

Client-side CSV/XLSX export
Client-Side CSV/XLSX Export

Starting with the 8.9.0 version, CSV and XLSX can be exported right there on the client side! So you do not need the export server’s help to complete that anymore.

Finitive trend channel annotation

Another helpful drawing tool is now available in stock charts: Meet the Finite Trend Channel! Check it out in action on top of an OHLC chart in our gallery and don’t miss out on our general Drawing Tools and Annotations Demo to see what other helpful instruments are currently at your disposal.

Volume-weighted average price indicator
Volume-Weighted Average Price Indicator

Continuing to extend the technical analysis capabilities, we’ve added a new indicator — the Volume-Weighted Average Price. VWAP does exactly what its name suggests. It measures the average price over a certain time horizon by determining the ratio of the value to the total volume. We’ll add the VWAP indicator to our Technical Indicators Demo soon. In the meantime, you can find its demonstration here.

Labels overlap
Gantt Chart Labels Overlap

For Gantt charts, we’ve added the option to truncate labels when they overlap. Enjoy the quick way to make your project and resource visualizations look especially neat.

First and Last labels placement improvement
Improved Placement of First and Last Labels

To further enhance how your data visualizations look with labels, we’ve also ensured the first and last labels in all regular charts now always find their best place on the chart. As a result, the chart display has become even more consistent and appealing.

Waterfall stack labels (multi-series)
Waterfall Stack Labels (Multi-Series)

In a multi-series Waterfall chart, now it is as easy as never to create an extra label showing the sum of the stack. Here’s how it works — check it out and feel free to make use of this new feature right away.

Polar points automatic placement
Automatic Placement of Polar Points

Polar charts can now automatically spread data points along the category if you tell them so. In particular, this allows you to create a so-called Bullseye chart without hassle!

More Enhancements

In addition to those new JavaScript chart features, we have also made some important improvements and bug fixes. To make sure nothing is missed, look at the complete release notes in the version history of the library you are using:
