Gradients In JavaFX

One of the very interesting features of JavaFX is its ability to have gradients (Linear or Radial) to the background color of the nodes. In this blog I am going to explain in detail about each gradient and its parameters.

Scroller control in JavaFX 2

JavaFX 2.x has many fascinating and useful controls. Among them “TabPane” is also one of the control. Here I am not going in detail about TabPane control, but I would like to inform that there might be some situations where we would like to have a control particularly like the TabPaneHeader ie., adding buttons/nodes dynamically and the scrolling behavior. For example, creating a custom browser layout, adding options scroll in the ribbon bar etc... The basic idea of developing this control is taken from Mozilla tab control.More or less this also includes the behavior of Horizantal ListView. :-)

Sliding in JavaFX (It’s all about clipping)

JavaFX animation package provides many amazing animation/transition effects. Let’s look into another effect, “Sliding” effect of node (relative to the parent node). The term ‘relative’ refers to, like the node should hide relatively under the parent node by sliding. If you are familiar with “Titled Pane”, I am speaking about the same effect how the content of the pane is shown and hide. I am trying to achieve this with some simple logic and using some properties of a node.

Percent Width for TableColumn in JavaFX 2.x TableView

The moment I started working with TableView in JavaFX 2.x, the first question raised in my mind is “Why there is no feature of setting the column widths in percentage as we do in HTML?” I am not sure what could be the reasons for not setting this feature. But if my application demands, I have to implement this by somehow ;). Ofcourse there are a couple of issues logged in JIRA related to this functionality, but till it get resolved here is the way (workaround) how I tried to get it.
