We’ve collected these simple code snippets to allow you learn JavaFX.

Example 1: Htmleditor

Study the following code:

Step 1: Create Project

  1. Open your favorite Java IDE.
  2. In the menu go to File --> Create New Project.

Step 2: Dependencies

No dependencies are needed for this project.

Step 3: Write Code

Our code will comprise the following java files:

  • HtmlEditorExample.java
  1. In your editor or IDE, create a file known as HtmlEditorExample.java.
  2. Then add the following code:

(a). HtmlEditorExample.java

We will start by adding some imports to this class:

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
import javafx.scene.web.HTMLEditor;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

Through inheritance we will be able to derive properties from a parent class. However we have to extend that parent class. So we do that using the extends keyword.

public class HtmlEditorExample extends Application {

Our class will have the following methods:

  • void main(String[] args)
  • void start(Stage primaryStage)

All Java applications have an entry point known as the main method. We will define it:

    public static void main(String[] args) {

Here is the full code:

package com.jenkov.javafx.htmleditor;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
import javafx.scene.web.HTMLEditor;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

public class HtmlEditorExample extends Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }

    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {

        HTMLEditor htmlEditor = new HTMLEditor();

        String htmlText = "<b>Bold text</b>";
        htmlEditor.setHtmlText(htmlText);

        String htmlTextEdited = htmlEditor.getHtmlText();
        System.out.println(htmlTextEdited);

        VBox vBox = new VBox(htmlEditor);
        Scene scene = new Scene(vBox);

        primaryStage.setScene(scene);
        primaryStage.setTitle("JavaFX App");

        primaryStage.show();
    }
}
