New Features in AnyChart 8.7.0
Stock UI Controls: Swap and Maximize
The AnyStock JS library is now provided with three new UI controls in the form of buttons — “Up,” “Down,” and “Maximize.” The buttons make it easy for the viewer, market data analyst or trader, to swap the adjoining stock charts by moving one of them up or down, or maximize a certain visualization so it fills the entire page.
Stock Plot Splitter
A splitter is now automatically created between stock chart plots. It enables the viewer to change the relative height of the charts by dragging them up or down. This feature can facilitate data analysis when multiple stock or financial charts are drawn on the same page one above the other, allowing the viewer to make a (currently) more important visualization bigger than the others.
Infinite Range Annotations
New Technical Indicators
Five new out-of-the-box indicators for technical analysis are now available in stock charts: Envelope (ENV), Ichimoku Cloud (IKH), Price Oscillator (PPO), Rank Correlation Index (RCI), and Psychological Line (PSY). You’ll find stock chart examples showcasing these and other technical indicators in a special section of our gallery.
Milestone Preview on Parent Task Bar
Milestone preview on the parent task bar is now available in the AnyGantt library. This new feature will allow the viewer of a Gantt chart to quickly understand what milestones such a task has and then expand it to learn the details if needed. Check out an example of a Gantt chart with milestone preview in our gallery.
Custom Marker for Milestone
In release 8.7.0, we’ve also added an option to customize milestone markers on Gantt charts by type and color. So now you can easily differentiate between the milestones of non-identical nature within the same project by depicting them in different ways. Look at a Gantt chart example with custom markers in our gallery.
Custom Basic Year
Previously, our Gantt charts only supported the calendar year as the basic year period. Now, it is possible to define a custom one. For example, you can go ahead and set a fiscal (financial) year, or an academic year, or any other year depending on what point of reference you actually need in this regard; quarters will be formed accordingly. Here’s a fiscal year demo.
Polygonal Selection in Maps
We’ve made it possible to select points on JS map charts powered by the AnyMap library by drawing a polygon. In addition to the rectangular marquee, such a complex, polygonal selection can now be easily configured using our API and is also available to the end user from the context menu. Give it a try on a dedicated selection type demo in our gallery.
In fact, release 8.7.0 has delivered even more improvements as well as bug fixes.
