Merry Xmas and a happy new year

Merry Xmas and a happy new year to everybody.

 I hope to be able to work on a new library for JavaFX during my vacation, which I was thinking about in the last couple of days. It's going to be a nice little thing, I think, so stayed tuned!

Binding Java Objects in JavaFX Script

Bindings are one of the key features of the JavaFX language, because they simplify one´s life tremendously. By reducing the amount of boilerplate code, which is usually needed to keep the objects in an application in-sync, the developer can concentrate on the really important things. (You know, like a cool looking UI.) ;-)

Unfortunately Java objects do not provide this capabilities for their fields. That means the boilerplate code has to be written manually. This article will show a solution to bind properties of Java objects.

Creating JavaFX sequences in Java programs (Part I)

The last article explained, how sequences are represented in the runtime and touched some of the possibilities to create new JavaFX sequences in Java programs. This article and the follow-up focus on sequence-creation and give an overview of additional possibilities.

Refactoring a function to become a bound function

The specification for bound functions seems to be very strict at first sight. But in this article, I present a little recipe with which almost every function can be refactored to a bound function.[Read More]

Creating JavaFX objects in Java programs

So far, all of the examples in my previous article about how to use JavaFX objects in Java code expected the object as an input parameter. But what if you want to create a JavaFX object directly? In this article, I will describe a very simple but effective solution.[Read More]

Using JavaFX objects in Java code

As shown in the last article, passing parameters between a JavaFX script and Java code is fairly simple, if the parameters are native to the Java language. But if we want to pass a JavaFX-object, things are different. The main obstacle is the fact, that the Java compiler is not able to read JavaFX scripts directly to extract the needed information. But JavaFX objects can be shared between a JavaFX and Java code by using one of the approaches presented in this article.[Read More]

Writing Java code for JavaFX Script

When writing Java classes which can be used in JavaFX scripts, three factors have to be considered: how to create a Java object, how to access its members and how to pass parameters between Java and JavaFX.[Read More]
