Highcharts not changing Y-axis label when drilldown

Patrick Berens asked on November 9, 2020

Hi ya Support,
We are trying to integrate Highcharts with Flexmonster and we are running into problem in the drilldown view. It seems it doesn’t change the y-axis label when drilling down so viewers of just the graph aren’t sure what dimension they are seeing.
From your example:

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll down to chart, click on “Blue”
  3. Notice y-axis label still says “Color” not “Region”

Anyway to fix this?

Hello, Patrick,
Thank you for writing to us. 
We kindly suggest using the Highcharts setTitle method together with Highcharts drilldown and drillup events.
For instance: 

function createAndUpdateChart(chartConfig) {

let defaultTitleXAxis = "Color";
let drilldownTitleXAxis = "Region";

chartConfig.title.text = "With Drilldown"; = {
drilldown: function(e) {
this.xAxis[0].setTitle({ text: drilldownTitleXAxis });
drillup: function(e) {
this.xAxis[0].setTitle({ text: defaultTitleXAxis });

Highcharts.chart('highcharts-container', chartConfig);

We have modified the provided JSFiddle to illustrate this approach:
Please let us know if this helps.
Kind regards,
