Vue and Highcharts are not bundled with the module and need to be included in your projects dependencies.


Install with npm

npm i --save vue3-highcharts

You can register the component in 2 ways.

Register as a global component.

import { createApp } from 'vue';
import VueHighcharts from 'vue3-highcharts';

const app = createApp(..options);

Register as a local component

import VueHighcharts from 'vue3-highcharts';

export default {
  name: 'MyChart',
  components: {


The following props can be passed to the component. Options is the only required one.

Name Type Required Default Notes
type String no 'chart' This should be the constructor type you'd use with highcharts. If you import the stock chat, you can pass 'stockChart' as this option for example.
options Object yes - This should be a Highcharts chart options object
redrawOnUpdate Boolean no true If the chart should be redrawn when options update.
oneToOneUpdate Boolean no false If the certain collections should be updated one to one. See here.
animateOnUpdate Boolean no true If the redraw should be animated.


The following events are emitted from the component. No data is provided with any event.

Name Notes
rendered Emitted when the chart has been rendered on the dom
updated Emitted when the chart options have been updated and the chart has been updated
destroyed Emitted when the Highcharts chart instance has been destroyed ( happens when the component unmounts )

The Highcharts chart object is also exposed on the component instance as chart

A wrapper div is also created with a .vue-highcharts class around the actual chart.

Simple Example

import { ref } from 'vue';

export default {
  name: 'chart'
  setup() {
    const data = ref([1, 2, 3])
    const chartData = computed(() =>{
      return {
        series: [{
          name: 'Test Series',
          data: data.value,

    const onRender = () => {
      console.log('Chart rendered');

    const onUpdate = () => {
      console.log('Chart updated');

    const onDestroy = () => {
      console.log('Chart destroyed');

    return {
.vue-highcharts {
  width: 100%;

Using Stock/Map charts

To use the stock map charts, you need to import and register them. For example, to use the map chart

import HighCharts from 'highcharts';
import useMapCharts from 'highcharts/modules/map';

  <vue-highcharts type="mapChart" :options="chartOptions"/>

Local Dev Issues.

Since Vue and Highcharts are not bundled with the module, you may need to add some webpack aliases.

For example, the following needs to be added when using vue-cli to vue.config.js

const path = require('path');
module.exports = {
  chainWebpack: (config) => {
    config.resolve.alias.set('vue$', path.join(__dirname, 'node_modules/vue'));
    config.resolve.alias.set('highcharts$', path.join(__dirname, 'node_modules/highcharts'));
