A constant line is a straight line that can be used to display, for example, an asymptote of a graph. To display constant lines on a chart, assign an array of objects specifying the options of each constant line to the constantLines field. It is necessary to set the value option within these objects. The other options can be set if required.
You can customize the appearance of all the value axis constant lines at once. For this purpose, use the valueAxis.constantLineStyle configuration object. Note that the options that are set within the valueAxis.constantLine object override the corresponding options that are set within the valueAxis.constantLineStyle object.
This option supports the following colors:
- Hexadecimal colors
- RGB colors
- RGBA colors
- Predefined/cross-browser color names
- Predefined SVG colors
The following values are available.

A constant line label shows information on the constant line. You can configure label appearance using the label object. Within this object, you can set font options, a position and text using corresponding fields. In addition, you can specify the horizontal and vertical alignments for the label.
You can set the label options for all the value axis constant lines together. For this purpose, use the valueAxis.constantLineStyle.label object. Note that the options that are set within the valueAxis.constantLine.label object override the corresponding options that are set within the valueAxis.constantLineStyle.label object.
