ControlsFX is a large open source library that extends JavaFX: http://fxexperience.com/controlsfx/features/
It requires Java 8.

jControlsFX is a wrapper for several controls and features from this library.

The following controls are supported:
BreadCrumbBar, CheckComboBox, ColorPicker, HyperlinkLabel, InfoOverlay, ListSelectionView, SegmentedButton, Separator and StatusBar.
You can see them in the screenshot (Mac version) and attached project.
You can download the compiled version of this example: www.b4x.com/b4j/files/ControlsFXExample.jar

It also includes a class with useful features named ControlsUtils.
ControlsUtils allows you to:
- Set the nodes background color or image.
- Add a decoration to a node (like the exclamation mark near the text field above).
- Show notifications.
- Set the size of nodes even if you do not know the node type.

Hi,

compiled the example using Java 1.8.0_66 and received error when calling

B4X:
Sub AppStart (Form1 As Form, Args() As String)
    cutils.DisableCssWarnings
    warningDecoration = fx.LoadImage(File.DirAssets, "exclamation.png")

B4X:
main._appstart (java line: 60)
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/javafx/Logging

Seems a change in the API. Any hint how to resolve?

Removed - the UI comes up, but when using f.e. the RangeSlider Control or the NotificationButton, following error:

B4X:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/javafx/Utils

Looked the ControlsFX site and downloaded based on info: For users of JavaFX 8u40 and greater, download ControlsFX 8.40.10.

BUT it did not resolve the problem.

BTW: When using the latest RemoteControl example, which also uses ControlsFX same errors.

Yes = copied controlsfx-8.40.10.jar and renamed to controlsfx-8.jar --- basically replacing the previous controlsfx-8.jar version 8.20.8.

Oops = Overlooked that controlsfx is part of the standard B4J libraries (... there are so many B4J libs - sometimes confused which are core and which are additional).
Moved over and working fine now - expect the disablecsswarning.

Thanks for your help - appreciated.

I just wanted to say that for users that used ControlFx since java 8u20, updating should be done this way:

  1. Install the latest B4J
  2. Install the latest java 8 JDK (8u66)
  3. Delete the old "controlsfx-8.jar", "jControlsFX.jar", jControlsFX.xml" from your additional libraries folder
  4. Download http://fxexperience.com/downloads/controlsfx-8.40.10.zip, rename "controlsfx-8.40.10.jar" to "controlsfx-8.jar" and copy it to your internal libraries folder (in program files), overwriting the one that came with B4J.

That works for me.

Note that the library is included in B4J installation.
I tried to recompile the library. I added the source to eclipse and look out for errors.

With one import i stuck:
B4X:
import com.sun.javafx.Logging;
which jar do i need to reference to get this import work?

My actual trying are
