    Default how to convert a java project into a javafx project?

    i have an existing java swing app/gui. i want to add some javafx functionality to the said project. things like JFXPanels and so on... when i try to add a JFXPanel, i get errors and the code doesn't work. what i am asking is; should i restart with a dedicated javafx project and copy/paste code? can i do that quite easily?

    thanks!

    Since a 'project' is a feature of certain IDEs and not of the Java language or platform, I have to ask whether this question is about programming or about a specific IDE.

    JavaFX 2 *is* a Java API. JavaFX 2 code *is* Java code.

    when i try to add a JFXPanel, i get errors
    Be specific. What errors? What are the error messages? We're not mind readers here.

    hi,

    i am using netbeans 7.2.1 and the jdk 7 update 9. i have ben trying javaFX scene builder 1.0, too. that creates FXML files/classes. do javaFX programs only utilize one FX main class and all other classes are standard java classes?

    the errors... if i type this:

    JFXPanel testPanel = new JFXPanel();

    well, then i get the entered text underlined in red and a cannot-find-symbol error. i have tried changing settings on the Java Platform Manager, but, to no avail. on the JavaFx tab, what should be in the JavaFX Sources field? i have this:

    Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_09

    on a dedicated JavaFX program, everything is ok and all works fine. so, how do i combine Java and JavaFX in one program? i need to adjust libraries and/or JARs?

    thank you

    So this is a NetBeans question rather than a JavaFX question.

    Project -> Properties -> Libraries -> Add Library -> Java FX 2 Runtime for Windows

    hello,

    thanks for your reply. i can't find the Java FX 2 Runtime for Windows library in the libraries window. it has everything but what i am looking for... could it have a different title?

    however, i started a new dedicated JavaFX project and the JFXPanel workls fine in that. so it's best to just use all-out JavaFX projrects?

    thanks

    Did you click the Add Library button?

    Hi,

    i did try the Add Library button but no JavaFX Runtime options were available.

    well, i have got it working now... i added the jfxrt.jar in my c: drive java folder to the project libraries compile tab - and it works! would you recommend adding any other similar jars to the project?

    ok :)
