Learning JavaFX 8 on Eclipse is simple, once you get past the first Hello World style example. This JavaFX tutorial introduces SceneBuilder, FXML, and JavaFX 8 for Eclipse with an event (an ActionListener) and a controller class.
Believe it or not, I have a JavaFX 8 book that never once explains how to hook up events between a POJO and FXML generated from SceneBuilder—hundreds of pages of how-to material on JavaFX, and not one word on events. Pretty sad.
No such letdown here.
This tutorial demonstrates and explains creating a window that displays a button and a textfield in JavaFX 8, and then hooking them up in Eclipse, using SceneBuilder, so that clicking the button results in the words “Hello World” displaying in the textfield.
