We have not yet provided a SplitView Control in JavaFX (and it is not in the plan for 1.3). However, the main reason is that it is relatively simple to write one from scratch so we’re focusing on some of the harder things (like TreeViews). I was asked recently how to go about writing a SplitView in JavaFX, so I decided to write a very short blog post with sample code from a demo I wrote for this past Devoxx. (more…)
Only a few links this week – it seems everyone is still thawing out (in the northern hemisphere anyway – it’s nice and summery down here in New Zealand where I live). So, this week we had four interesting posts:
- The JavaFX team has put out two new articles this week, entitled ‘Easy Animations With the Animated Transitions‘ and ‘Create a Secure JavaFX Application‘.
- The JavaFX team also put out an update to the JavaFX plugin for Eclipse, which brings a bunch of new features since the last release came out in June 2009.
- toumaille has posted a JavaFX level indicator, which may prove to be very useful for some people.
Catch you all again in a weeks time.
The marketing folks at Sun email me when things are being announced. They just let me know that a new JavaFX plugin for Eclipse has been released. As per the announcement that’ll sooner or later turn up on the official JavaFX blog:
A new version of the JavaFX Plugin for Eclipse IDE has just been released! This latest version is based on the JavaFX 1.2.1 SDK and supports Eclipse 3.5.x IDE. Read the Release Notes to learn more about the changes made since the June 2009 release. Download this latest version using the instructions in the Getting Started document.
Let us know what you think of this new release by providing feedback on the Feedback Forum for JavaFX 1.2.1 Plugin Release page.
So, please, give it a whirl and leave feedback on this post if you like it, wish it were better/different, etc.
Welcome to the first posting of 2010. This week there has been an incredibly small number of posts, so this is a very short post.
- Jeff Frieson has blogged about how he created his Happy Holidays JavaFX application, which won the most recent JavaFX coding competition.
- Carl Dea has created a poor man’s form designer, and provided both an overview as well as the souce code. By his own admission this is really just him playing around, but who knows, if you like it perhaps you can help grow this into a useful application.
That’s it – short and sweet. It’s good to see too – it means you’re all enjoying your holidays 🙂 Catch you next week!
