Hi,

There is already a javafx 8 datepicker library on the forum, but I needed more functionalities, so I wrote my own datepicker library based on javafx 8 datepicker and localdate.

Example.jpg


jDatePickerEx:
This library offers more than the datepicker functions and methods. It includes parts of the Javafx "java.time.LocalDate" and also some custom functions that I created for my needs, like the autocorrect dates.
With this library, you can control the date picker, compare the selected date with another, get separately the selected year, month, day of month or add and subtract number of years, months weeks and days to the selected date and event more.

Requirements:
- Javafx 8 minimum
- Scene Builder 2.0 minimum

Events:
One event raised when the date has been changed.
B4X:
Sub datePicker_DateChanged
    'Your code here.
    'DatePicker.GetDate
    'DatePicker.GetYear
    'DatePicker.IsLeapYear
    'DatePicker.IsBefore(2015, 1, 1)
    '....
End Sub
How to use it:
  1. Copy the included jar and xml files to your additional libraries folder
  2. In SceneBuilder, create a DatePicker node and give it a name.
  3. Initialise jDatePickerEx with the datepicker node previously created.
I plan to add the option do disable cells later if I have time.

Comments and critics welcomed!

I need a empty datapickerex. how can i do.
Thank
I've updated the library and added a new method "SetDateToNull".
Be careful with that because you will get nullPointerExceptions if you try to get the date or alter the date with some of the provided methods.
