Project_Name : Brief_Description

Projects using CustomStage

  • RentLio : This is a vehicle reservation system. Which is made with JavaFX and also using hibernate and RMI.


This CustomStage is a JavaFX undecorated Stage. To put it simple, CustomStage is a Window and you can add different views (FXML files) to the window (like changing the scene of the window) as you prefer. The basic problem making the Stage "Undecorated" is that you will not be able to,

  1. Resize the window using mouse.
  2. Lose the default action buttons.
  3. Move the window (by dragging) (etc.)

So, CustomStage will get rid of all of these issues since it includes,

  1. Window resizing (the ResizeHelper class is used here with minor modifications) -> ResizeHelper class
  2. Default action buttons and their behaviour (close, maximize/restore, minimize)
  3. Window dragging

What else?

  • Window is automatically scaled as for screen resolution
  • Very responsive
  • Apart from those, this is called CustomStage since it can be customized as you wish


  • Easy. You can get your customized Stage using the CustomStageBuilder class. This class includes all the methods you will need to customize your window.
