Since JavaFX maps closely to Java, it includes many of the user interface components that were commonly used in developing JavaSwing applications. Oracle’s website shown here at this url is a great resource for better understanding how to work with the various JavaFX UI components.
Take a look at the list and see how many you recognize or have used in the past. I’m gonna scroll down a little bit. I’ve use Label and Button and Radio Button, so several of these are very familiar.
If I scroll down a little bit more, you’ll see there’s actually a few new components that were added with JavaFX, including the Tree Table View which is a control designed to visualize an unlimited number of rows of data, broken up into columns.
If I scroll down a little more, there’s also a Date Picker. The Date Picker control enables a selection of a given day from a given calendar. Since you’re probably familiar with many of these components, I wanna create at least a simple example to demonstrate how we can add the component.
