B4J Library jFXtrasControls library

If you are using the jMsgboxes library, and you should be, you will already have release 5 of FXtra Labs, jfxtras-labs-2.2-r5.jar. This library exposes some controls also located in jfxtras.

There's a Breadcrumb Bar and Items. A NumberUpDown, Date and Time Pickers and a List Spinner. Version 1.1 enhanced the ListSpinner and added DateTextField, TimeTextField and XYControl

If you don't already have it release 5 of jfxtras can be downloaded from

There is a demonstration for JFXtras called Ensemble that is modelled after a similar demonstration for Java FX. It used to be linked from the JFXtras home page but the link has gone. I found it at
and it is worth downloading and trying it. It includes sample Java code which is useful as the Javadoc for jfxtras-labs-2.2-r5.jar is devoid of comments.

The similar Ensemble for JavaFX itself can be found on Oracles website for Java in javafx_samples-2_2_45-windows.zip at bottom of this page
This is also well worth looking at.

EDIT :- Version 1.2 now posted with SceneBuilder integration. See post #8 for details.

EDIT :- Version 1.3 now posted with MDI Window control. See post #14 for details.

EDIT :- Version 1.4 now posted with additional events. See post #18 for details.
