JavaFX News, Demos and Insight // FX Experience

JavaFX News, Demos and Insight // FX Experience
Now that JavaOne is over and everyone finally has a chance to exhale, it’s time to start blogging about all the stuff we talked about. For my part, I’m hoping to blog about a bunch of stuff that I covered in my two sessions (primarily TableView cell spanning, RangeSlider, Rating, SegmentedButton and whatever else I can find on my machine). For today, lets talk about adding cell spanning support to TableView. Just a quick pro tip: for those of you who just want a jar and don’t care about how cell spanning was developed, you might want to skip to the end of this post… So, I need to start this post as per usual – this is not a product of Oracle – there is no support contract or guarantee that this code won’t format your hard drive or do something equally nefarious. Please act responsibly for your personal circumstances.

Building a JavaFX Search Bar - VocabHunter Lots of desktop software applications such as word processors and web browsers include a search facility to allow the user to quickly find a word in another part of a document. In this article I show how to build the JavaFX user interface for a search bar. You’ll learn about using FontAwesomeFX to add beautiful icons to your JavaFX application, about how ControlsFX provides new and interesting user interface controls and about some useful techniques that should be applicable in lots of different types of project. Jonathan Giles I’ve spent the last two weeks crammed inside a steel tube doing a full trip around the world bringing JavaFX joy to developers everywhere Because of this, I missed out on posting the links for the last few weeks, and equally bad, I became so busy during that time I couldn’t keep track of things that happened. Therefore, I apologise in advance if I missed your news from the last few weeks.

Getting Started with JavaFX: Animation and Visual Effects in JavaFX You can use JavaFX to quickly develop applications with rich user experiences. In this Getting Started tutorial, you will learn to create animated objects and attain complex effects with very little coding. Figure 5-1 shows the application to be created. Figure 5-2 shows the scene graph for the ColorfulCircles application. Nodes that branch are instantiations of the Group class, and the nonbranching nodes, also known as leaf nodes, are instantiations of the Rectangle and Circle classes. The tool used in this Getting Started tutorial is NetBeans IDE. Harmonic Code: Customize your dashboard Aloha,This is just a short post about the TilesFX library (github, bintray, maven) in combination with other libraries like The TilesFX standard tiles are nice and might be good for most of the typical dashboard content but what if you need more than that?Let's say you would like to see a listview or one of your custom controls on such tile...Well for that reason I've added the CustomTileSkin which has the title and the text property of the standard tiles and which comes with an area where you can put your own JavaFX nodes.So this is what it looks like... As you can see the area for custom JavaFX nodes fills most of the tile so that you should have enough space for your components. This will start the Main class of the project and will show you the following screen... I hope this demo will help you to make use of TilesFX for your own dashboards.That's it for keep coding... :)

The GroovyFX Guide In JavaFX, you display graphics and controls on the screen by constructing a scene graph that consists of various types of nodes - perhaps a circle or a button control. The scene graph is put into a Scene, which defines the area in which your scene graph will be displayed. The Scene can then be shown on a Stage. You can think of a Stage as the application container.

JavaFX 8 Tutorial - Part 4: CSS Styling Topics in Part 4 CSS StylingAdding an Application Icon CSS Styling Integrate JavaFX, Hibernate and PostgreSQL with the MVC Pattern JavaFX provides a rich set of UI controls, which simplify the development of visually immersive front ends for database-driven applications. When combined with the PostgreSQL database and the Hibernate ORM tool, JavaFX can handle the presentation layer for large-scale, data-driven business applications (JavaFX PostgreSQL) as well as robust desktop applications (JavaFX Hibernate). In this article, I demonstrate how to integrate JavaFX, Hibernate and PostgreSQL using the MVC pattern and present a sample CRUD application with a data-navigation feature.

Groovy Calamari - Issue 15 Comment The Ratpack Edition Ratpack 1.0.0 shipped a couple of weeks ago. 4 Creating a Custom Control with FXML (Release 8) In this tutorial, you create an application with a custom control that consists of a text field and a button, as shown in Figure 4-1. Before you start, ensure that the version of NetBeans IDE that you are using supports JavaFX 8. (NetBeans IDE 7.4 with patch 2 is the earliest version that meets that criteria.) It is assumed that you are familiar with the basic structure of an FXML project (.java, .fxml, and controller files).
