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:
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.
This time an update to the ribbon control. I’ve done some tweaks to the UI as well as to the API and added a new control called a Gallery.
Below you can see an image of the updated Ribbon.
In the next picture you’ll see the new control which is called Gallery. Although you can use it by itself, I’ve never seen it being used outside the ribbon.
The up and down arrows allow you to navigate through the list of choices. The other button will open up a popup (picture below) which gives you a full view of the choices with each choice belonging to a category.
All of this is CSS and FXML friendly meaning you can declare an instance of the ribbon using FXML and you can style the ribbon to your liking by overriding the existing CSS.
