Original post from our old UserVoice platform:
Add support for adding simple data tables inside or outside of a chart. This would be similar to a legend, but contains custom data sets. Currently we use the Highcharts Renderer to render a background rectangle based on the matching chart options and draw the table the same way the legend is drawn outside of the table. It would be nice if there was the option for that datatable to exist under the chart/overlayed on the chart or completely separate from the chart.
Added a study for integration with Handsontable, a third party grid component: https://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/library/pure/highcharts/highcharts/tree/master/samples/highcharts/studies/summary-table-handsontable/
The data table is now a feature of the data-export module. See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/3/. Notice how it updates as the chart is updated (for example by showing/hiding series).
Here’s a proof of concept of how you can draw a table programmatically: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/VEs7z/
