#Cavity Search

Cavity Search reproduces the web browser find behaviour for any JavaFX UI. The screen capture below demonstrates Cavity Search using the search input to highlight text in a variety of standard controls.

The aim is to allow users to easily navigate and find data even in large UIs.


For usage, check out


  • Documentation.

  • Allow more sophisticated searches. For example, Lucene fuzzy queries to forgive those with sausage fingers.

  • Update searches when the layout or searched text changes.

  • Tab through overlays.
