Information

Two colors can be used for the gradient. Additionally to the color, the opacity can also be changed

  • First colour "rgba(15,15,15, 1)" or "rgba(15,15,15)" → full opacity
  • Second colour "rgba(15,15,15, 0)" → no opacity = white


Configuration

It is best to configure it directly within the JSON under "plotOptions":

  "plotOptions": {
    "series": {
      "fillColor": {
        "linearGradient": {
          "x1": 0,
          "y1": 0, 
          "x2": 0, 
          "y2": 1  
        },        
        "stops": [                
          [
            0,
            "rgba(0,0,51)"
          ],
          [
            1,
            "rgba(0,0,51,0)"
          ]
        ]
      },
      "animation": false,
      "dataLabels": {
        "enabled": false
      }
    }
  }


Using "linearGradient" the direction of the gradient can be adjusted. The parameters x1 to y2 decide at which side the first color will start: x1 = left, x2 = right, y1 = bottom, y2 = top.

Under "stops" the gradient colors and their opacity get defined. The first three parameters of rgba() determine the color. Opacity is defined by the fourth parameter: 0 = no opacity, 1 = full opacity. As 1 represents 100%, the degree of opacity can be changed using decimal places (e.g. 0.5).

The code above would create a gradient from top to bottom with the bottom being white.
