    Greetings.

    Now, that the Internal Designer is common to both B4A and B4J :):):):

    1. Is there a procedure to convert B4A Layouts to B4J layouts?
    2. What would be a best practice to transport code in events from B4A to B4J?

    WISH - I recognize this is a BIG WISH
    1. Bring a B4A project to B4J now that the Internal Designer exists in both.
    (I realize that the events are not totally compatible, but it would be great to bring as much of a B4A project to B4J)

    Thank you.

    Sandy

    Hi Erel
    If I use the internal Designer and not JavaFx Scene Builder can I remove JFx library from project? (For device that not support JavaFX)
    Thanks

    I also have a question about the desigers so I better add it here...

    I have a design in that external editor, but I can't seem to open it in the built-in one?

    Does that mean that I need to redo all that to get rid of that external designer?
    (due to the lack of a format convertor)

    Nice Work.
    I wondering if this Layouts made with the Visual Designer also compatible with Scene Builder.
    Like Loading Fxml from Scene Builder into the Designer.

    Note that the designer is just a tool to create GUI's in the same way as B4A/B4i. The apps compiled are still based on JavaFX.

    The SceneBuilder uses FXML and the Visual Designer uses BJL files. As of now there are no converter tools.

    Scene Builder and the internal designer work differently under the hood. It is not just a different format.

    You can combine scene builder and the internal designer layouts (load the bjl layout to a pane added with scene builder for example).
