Highcharts 4 extension for ExtJs

A new version of Highcharts extension for ExtJs 4 is released. This extension (3.0.1) is a major release which includes following updates:

  • supports Highcharts 4 including the long waited 3D charts and heatmap (in beta)
  • added missing Pyramid series
  • beta support for Highmaps

The documentation has also been updated. Check out the demos on 3D charts and the license for usage. The demos for Highmaps and heatmap will be coming soon which will be implemented in separate web application (using Sencha Architect).

    I am incorporating Highcharts_Sencha into our own application based on ExtJs. I wrote a couple of ExtJs Override classes (in order to keep your code untouched) that may be helpful.

    See the code here:

      It looks like you have path setup problem. Have a look at the Ext.Loader reference manual.

      Yes, I know this is one of the outstanding issues. However, I am max out trying to finish the Highcharts book. Once I get this out of the doors, I will fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi Joe.. my email address is I use ExtJS 4 and 5 I do test/prod builds using Sencha Cmd 5.1. How much do you charge for commercial usage? Can you also help me out with HeatMap examples? (a link will do just fine) Thanks once again.

      I have just written a blog demonstrating how to use sencha cmd to build app. Is that any help? If not, I need to know how big is your work on heatmap and then decide from there. It’s better you contact me via
