SVGImageView

A control used for rendering SVG image files. Utilizing the jsvg library, ensuring high-definition quality even when scaled.

  • Packaging Note: Not suitable for native packaging yet due to AWT dependency.
  • Content Note: Static only for now; future jsvg updates may add animation.
  • Development Note: jsvg is evolving and does not yet support all features of the SVG specification.

CalendarView

A nice UI for displaying the month of a year. The view is highly configurable and allows specifying latest and earliest date for selection purposes. The days of the previous or the next month can either be shown or hidden. When clicking on the month the user will be presented with a custom view for quickly selecting a different month. The same happens when clicking on the year. The calendar view uses a selection model which can work in three ways: single date selection, multiple date selection, or date range selection. Last but not least, the layout of the header can be changed, so that the month and year labels are either left, center, or right aligned.

CalendarView

CalendarPicker

A date picker control that uses the calendar view of GemsFX. The field is editable to the user can also enter the date via keyboard.

CalendarPicker

DateRangeView

A view that allows the user to specify a date range. The view supports defining a couple of presets for quick range selection, e.g. "last week". The left and right month views are bound so that the right calendar will never allow the user to specify a date that is earlier than those dates shown in the left month view.

DateRangeView

DateRangePicker

A picker that allows the user to specify a date range via the date range view. The picker supports two different layouts (small, big). The picker shows the selected range and also a name for the range, which is either derived from the name of a selected preset or simply says something like "custom range".

YearView

A view for displaying a configurable number of columns and rows with years. The user can use the grid to quickly select a new year. Properties are available to restrict the earliest and the latest year that is selectable.

YearView

YearPicker

A view for picking a year from a dropdown showing the year view control.

YearMonthPicker

YearMonthView

A view for displaying the months of a given year. The user can quickly switch between years. Properties are available to restrict the selection to an earliest and a latest month.

YearMonthPicker

YearMonthPicker

A control for specifying the month of a year (see time API class "YearMonth"). It is very similar to the standard date picker class and actually inherits a lot of styling attributes from it.

YearMonthPicker

Time Picker

A small control used for entering a time. The control can be configured with a "step rate" for the minutes field (e.g. "15 minutes") that will be used when incrementing or decrementing the minutes field via the keyboard (arrow keys). The control can also be configured to only allow a time within the time range defined by an earliest and a latest time. A popup can be used to work with the mouse only. It is also possible to specify whether the fields should "roll over" or not when they reach their minimum or maximum value. For example: the minute field shows 59 minutes and the user wants to increase it via the arrow key. Then the new value will be "0" when rollover is enabled. If not the value will remain at 59. Rollover combined with "linking fields" will cause the hours field to get increased when the minute field rolls over from 59 to 0 or decreased when the minute field rolls over from 0 to 59.

TimePicker

Duration Picker

A small control used for entering a duration. The control can be configured to only allow a duration within the range defined by a minimum and maximum duration. A popup can be used to work with the mouse only. It is also possible to specify whether the fields should "roll over" or not when they reach their minimum or maximum value. The control supports similar features as the time picker: rollover fields, keyboard support, linking fields, filling fields with leading zeros, etc..

DurationPicker

Spacer

Spacer extends Region and is designed to create flexible spaces in container layouts, especially in HBox and VBox. Within an HBox, the Spacer grows horizontally. Within a VBox, it grows vertically. When the activeProperty is set to false, the Spacer will not grow.

Spacer

StripView

A view for horizontally positioning a number of nodes, one for each item added to the view's model. Scroll buttons will become visible on either side of the view if the available width is not sufficient to show all items / nodes. Scrolling is animated (can be turned off). The nodes on either side are fading out so that the scroll controls are completely visible. The view also supports the single selection of an item.

StripView

InfoCenterPane

A view for displaying (groups of) notifications. Incoming / new notifications slide-in via an animation. Each group can have its own factory for the creation of notification views. A group with multiple notifications can be shown stacked or expanded. A threshold can be defined to determine the maximum number of notifications that can be shown. If the notifcation count is higher than the threshold then the user can switch to a list view showing them all. Groups can be pinned so that they always stay in the top position without being scrolled out of view.

InfoCenterPane

ScreensView

A small control that can be used to display the screen geometries as seen by the application. The view can also display the application's windows, and some arbitrary shapes (might be useful for debugging purposes).

ScreensView

Stage Manager

The StageManager class is a utility class that keeps track of a stage's location and dimensions. These values will be stored and used across user sessions via the java.util.prefs API.

Session Manager

The SessionManager class is a utility class that can be used to monitor observables and persist them across user sessions. This can be useful, for example, for storing and restoring the position of the divider of a SplitPane.

Search Text Field

A textfield that has been nicely decorated to express that it is used for performing searches.

SearchTextField

Search Field

An auto-suggest text field with a behaviour similar to the spotlight search experience on Mac. While typing the field will automatically finish the entered text if it has a search result where the name starts with the exact typed text. At any time the typed text and the auto-completed text will be visually distinguishable. The field is also capable of creating a new object for the entered text if no result can be found. For detailed instructions read the WIKI page.

SearchField

Tags Field

An extension of the SearchField control that supports the creation of tags. Selected values are converted into tags when the user hits enter, the right arrow key, or tab. The API of this control allows applications to retrieve the tags, or to monitor the selection state of the tags. The control uses a FlowPane for its layout, which allows the tags to span multiple rows.

TagsField

Dialog Pane

The class DialogPane can be used as a layer on top of any application. It offers various methods to display different types of dialogs.

  • Information
  • Warning
  • Error
  • Confirmation
  • Node (any UI)
  • Busy (spinning animation, indeterminate)
  • Single line text input
  • Multiple line text input

DialogPane

Resizable Text Area

A custom control that wraps a text area and adds a resize handle to the lower right corner of it. The area can be configured to be resizable in vertical, horizontal, or both directions.

ResizableTextArea

Expanding Text Area

A customized text area that grows based on its text content. The text area will never show vertical or horizontal scrollbars.

ExpandingTextArea

Photo View

A control for adding and editing a user profile photo (or whatever). The user can click on the control to choose an image file via a file chooser (replacable) or via drag and drop. Once added the user can move the image around and zoom in / out. As a convenience the view always provide a cropped version of the original image. This allows applications to store a smaller file on the server / in the database. The control supports some keyboard shortcuts. The file chooser can be activated by pressing SPACE or ENTER. The photo can be removed by pressing DELETE or BACK_SPACE.

PhotoView

Payment Option Controls

A specialized subclass of ImageView that can be used to display different graphics for different payment options. Graphics provided by Gregoire Segretain (https://www.sketchappsources.com/contributor/gregoiresgt)

LightOption DarkOption

DrawerStackPane

A stackpane with an optional node that can be shown inside a drawer. The drawer is animated and can slide in and out. When the drawer is showing a semi-transparent glass pane will cover the background. In addition the last height of the drawer can be persisted via the preferences API so that next time the drawer will show itself like in the last user session.

DrawerStackPane

FilterView

A control for filtering the content of an observable list. Works in combination with TableView, ListView, or any control that is based on observable lists.

FilterView
