I am using Highcharts (css version) with Heatmap, and I am trying to add boost.js to the page. I have several charts on my page and a few of them strongly need boost.js to work properly. With Heatmap, boost is not working.

Expected behaviour

Adding boost.js should make chart to render faster

Actual behaviour

The page now crashes with the following error:
Uncaught TypeError: point.series.pointAttribs is not a function

You need to display the console (F12 in chrome) to see the error.

Live demo with steps to reproduce

Removing boost.js from the page will make it to work again

Affected browser(s)

Reproducible under:

  • Chrome 58 64 bit on linux ubuntu 16.04
  • MS Edge on Windows 10 x64
  • Firefox 49.02 on Windows 10 x64

Possibly related: #6314

@TorsteinHonsi The issue can still be reproduced by using boost-canvas.js fall-back when webgl is not available.


In order to trigger the issue you need to disable webgl, you can do so by using chromium with the command line option --disable-gpu, or by running chrome under linux through a remote x session (with xrdp for example).

It's the combination of both boost.js and boost-canvas.js what gave me the issue, adding just one or the other seems to work fine.

Let me know if you prefer that I enter this as a new bug
