December 7th, 2021 by AnyChart Team

AnyChart JS Charts 8.11.0 Released with Awesome New Data Visualization FeaturesExcited to tell you we’ve just pushed a major update to our JavaScript charting library! The newly arrived features and improvements make our core solution even more flexible, adding awesome fresh capabilities designed to further help you on your data visualization development journey. Intrigued? Let us show what’s new in AnyChart JS Charts 8.11.0 right away!

New Features in AnyChart JS Charts

Baseline Milestones in Gantt Chart
Baseline Milestones in Gantt Chart

Milestones can now be put on not only actual but also baseline elements, which makes project planning and tracking with our Gantt charts even more efficient and streamlined. So first you can schedule any important dates such as meetings, approvals, phase completions, and other major events or goals. Then it is easy to visually compare the actual milestone dates to the initial, baseline project plan. Check out an example of a Gantt chart with a baseline milestone in our gallery.

Axes Intersection Point
Custom Axis Placement

We have added the option to draw the X and Y axes anywhere on the chart. Previously, you could only set them to the fixed top or bottom and left or right positions, respectively. Now, you have full control over the scale values at which the axis lines appear and therefore where they cross. For instance, now you can easily make both axes go through the origin point (0, 0) in graphs with negative values. Check out an example of a column chart with custom axis placement in our gallery.

Outside Labels in Waterfall Chart
Outside Labels in Waterfall Chart

In waterfall charts, now it is possible to caption small elements in a neatly elegant way with ease. If a data label does not fit in the bounds of its data point, you can place it outside of the bar. Such outside labels can be especially helpful in stacked waterfall charts that display multiple series on the same plot. Check out an example of a waterfall chart with outside labels in our gallery.

Improvements in AnyChart JS Charts

That’s not all the new release brings! We have also made a number of improvements to the existing charting mechanisms.

For example, now you can easily do the following in waterfall charts:

  • Add and configure the total and subtotal bars as independent elements.
  • Split the total bar into multiple bars representing user-defined values or expressions.
  • Display stack labels in single-series visualizations.

And in stock charts:

  • Use plot controls via the API.
  • Add series point-related events.
