HighCharts Drilldown - colorByPoint

What I am doing is asynchronously adding drilldown series using

addSeriesAsDrilldown
, but I am not to be able to enable
colorByPoint
for whichever drilldown series I choose. Is there a way to do this? The API documentation for HighCharts is a little obnoxious to navigate and find an answer.

I've tried Google searching it but, it doesn't seem anyone else has had the question.

I'm not sure a code snippet is really required, since it's just a general question. But if you need something, let me know.

Answer

I've somewhat figured this out myself after a little bit of tinkering. It looks as though you can set the colorByPoint option dynamically through the plots option like so:

chart.options.plotOptions.column.colorByPoint = true

Interchanging "column" for whatever type of chart you want. So what I am doing is just setting the option dynamically after I receive the data back from the controller. Hopefully this helps someone else in the future.
