I’m not going to spend much time on the GridPane itself, but will show you a basic event handling and a binding.
In JavaFX an event object is represented by the instance of the class javafx.event.Event. There are different ways of handling events. Depending on how you structured your application you can handle events either in Java or in FXML. In this blog I’ll do everything in Java, where you can process events using one of the following techniques:
- Create an instance of an anonymous class overriding its handle() callback method. Pass it to the the event handler for a specific event.
- Use lambda expressions.
- Use Java method references introduced in Java 8.
The Sign In window, will have the buttons Sign In, Cancel, and the hyperlink Forgot password. Each of these controls will use different way of handling click event. The Sign In window will look as follows:
The emerging Internet of Everything creates tremendous new opportunities for customer engagement and business model innovation. However, enterprises must overcome a number of critical challenges to bring these new solutions to market. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Martin, CTO/CIO at nfrastructure, outlined these key challenges and recommended approaches for overcoming them to achieve speed and agility in the design, development and implementation of Internet of Everything solutions wi...
