FXForm has been ported to JavaFX 2.0, check FXForm2 page


FXForm is a library providing automatic form generation for JavaFX objects:

var object = EditedClass {}

def form = DefaultFormGenerator {
    edited: object

where EditedClass is defined like this:

class EditedClass {
    public var name: String;
    public var age: Number;
    public var favoriteMovie: String;
    public var elem: TestEnum;
    public var birthday: DateTime;
    public var hungry: Boolean;

The resulting form will look like this:



  • CSS support for label styling
  • Tooltips
  • Custom renderers support
  • Fields reordering and filtering
  • Localization

This library takes inspiration from the Tapestry's BeanEditForm component and from the majick-properties project.


Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
