    Default StringProperty not holding correct data

    This first number of the output is meant to be a timestamp for the data (formatted to show only minutes). The second part of data, after the ':', is the data being read from the serialport. This number is not correct, and is changed within this bit of code. The data is read as "Solar: A.AA", where A.AA is a number read from a sensor. I am able to read the data fine right before this if statement, but after that the data output changes. I'm not sure why. StringProperty is not printing out the correct data:

    Java Code:
    serialPort.addEventListener(event -> {
                    if(event.isRXCHAR()) {
                        try {
                            sb = new StringBuilder();
                            String str = sb.toString();
                            if(str.endsWith("\r\n")) {
                                sb = new StringBuilder();
                                line.setValue(sb.append(df.format(time) + ":").append(str.substring(0,str.indexOf("\r\n"))).toString());
                        } catch (SerialPortException ex) {
                            Logger.getLogger(SerialComm.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);                    }
    StringProperty [value: 40:]
    StringProperty [value: 40:36]
    StringProperty [value: 40:]
    StringProperty [value: 40:3]
    StringProperty [value: 40:]
    StringProperty [value: 40:45]

    Default Re: StringProperty not holding correct data

    What is the purpose of those StringBuilders?
    They look unnecessary at first glance.

    So, you read a String from that port.
    Log the value of that String.
    Then log the value of
    Java Code:
    df.format(time) + ":" + str.substring(0,str.indexOf("\r\n"));
    Your code is not going to be making stuff up.
    It's doing exactly what you've asked it to.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
