Use of ListView - UI Control

Guest Author

A simple example how ListView works in JavaFX 1.2. I guess it need more feature in next release. But it do basic stuff like providing scrollbar if list is long, selected item actions.Something like this :

Here is the simple code, in which I am adding text array into a ListView(10-15 lines of code). Hmm, image is currently not supported in ListView but soon it will be.


package listviewexample;
import javafx.scene.control.ListView;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.text.Font;
import javafx.scene.text.Text;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.stage.StageStyle;
 var te:Text[];
 for(i in [0..20]) {
     var tt = Text {
     font : Font {
         size: 24
     x: 10, y: 30
     content: "HelloWorld{i}"
 } insert tt into te;
 var simpleList : ListView = ListView {
        translateX: 0
        translateY: 0
        height: 330
        width: 240
 for(i in [0..20])
    insert te[i].content into simpleList.items;
Stage {
    title: "Simple List"
    width: 240
    height: 325
    style: StageStyle.TRANSPARENT
    scene: Scene {
        content: [

For some fancy use of ListView, you can see Rakesh Tweeter application on /samples page. Or Josh "A custom virtual list" on jfxstudio.org. Some UI control make life easy.
