This time a control that’s not part of the windows framework: the spinner.
I opted to style the control in its STYLE_CLASS_SPLIT_ARROWS_HORIZONTAL style, that is horizontal arrows split between left and right sides. To style the control you need to add the style you want to the StyleClass observable list:
A small update to the Ribbon control: Contextual Ribbon Tabs.
Some controls should only appear when a particular object is selected because they only affect the configuration of that object. This is why Contextual Ribbon Tabs exist. They only appear when a particular object is selected and disappear when it looses its selection.
To differentiate themselves from regular Ribbon Tabs they appear with a different color, they can also be composed of more than one Tab. In the picture below the Contextual Ribbon Tab appears in blue.
Java 8u40 is a small release but never the less has some interesting improvements:
Text entry control that displays formatted text such as phone number, date etc. Restricts input to a certain format and can also be used for validation of user input to a certain format. Kind of like JFormattedTextfield in Swing.
Another news is that since 8u33 ARM will no longer be officially supported. This happened because:
“This is a resource trade off within Oracle. Included in that difficult
trade off decision was the ongoing investment needed to properly support
FX in a world where so much the hardware is not standardized — it
really is difficult to have enough hardware and testing resources
committed to support FX on ARM”
Hopefully this support will unofficially continue in JavaFX Ports.
