Welcome guys. Learn the JavaFX UI widgets using these code snippets.

Example 1: Splitpane

Study the following code:

Step 1: Create Project

  1. Open your favorite Java IDE.
  2. In the menu go to File --> Create New Project.

Step 2: Dependencies

No dependencies are needed for this project.

Step 3: Write Code

Our code will comprise the following java files:

  • SplitPaneExample.java
  1. In your editor or IDE, create a file known as SplitPaneExample.java.
  2. Then add the following code:

(a). SplitPaneExample.java

We will need functionalities injected into this class via ready made classes. But first we have to import them. Let's go ahead and do just that:

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.control.SplitPane;
import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

Through inheritance we will be able to derive properties from a parent class. However we have to extend that parent class. So we do that using the extends keyword.

public class SplitPaneExample extends Application {

Our class will have the following methods:

  • void main(String[] args)
  • void start(Stage primaryStage)

We will add a main method to our Java class as shown below:

    public static void main(String[] args) {

Here is the full code:

package com.jenkov.javafx.splitpane;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.control.SplitPane;
import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

public class SplitPaneExample extends Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }

    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {

        SplitPane splitPane = new SplitPane();

        VBox leftControl  = new VBox(new Label("Left Control"));
        VBox midControl   = new VBox(new Label("Mid Control"));
        VBox rightControl = new VBox(new Label("Right Control"));

        splitPane.getItems().addAll(leftControl, midControl, rightControl);

        Scene scene = new Scene(splitPane);

        primaryStage.setScene(scene);
        primaryStage.setTitle("JavaFX App");

        primaryStage.show();
    }
}
