Forum: JavaFX. Populating TableView from a method. S Fox. I like I got stuck on something, I cannot figure out how to populate a TableView! I have a 2 dimensional array and want to fill up the table with it. I need to somehow convert the 2d array into an ObservableList or ObservableArray, but after looking at many examples I still can't figure this out.
Most examples only show how to populate the table by manual input from the user, but I need to generate my data with a method and fill it. I definitely don't want to create a different setter method per table column, I want to easily change the table size if needed: 3x3, 6x6, 20x20, etc.
Also, every object in my table will have the same properties, imagine something like this: Red Green Blue jeep camaro corvette accord camry mustang I think I'm close to understanding how this works, so please if anyone can help it's much appreciated. The many examples I have found so far on the internet are far too simplistic to be of any actual use to me. Steffe Wilson. Hi, welcome aboard. That's quite a hard problem to set yourself as someone new to java, but I'm guessing you have previous programming experience in other languages.
ObservableList provides an addAll method which I would think to be the way to go, so you would need to copy or re-implement your 2D array into an ArrayList so it can be passed into observerList. John Damien Smith. You need to: Load the data from your 2D array up into an ObservableList. Set the ObservableList as the items for your TableView.
Define an appropriate cellValueFactory which extracts the corresponding value for a cell in the table for a given table column. When you see the solution coded up it is perhaps simpler than it seems or perhaps not :- import javafx.
Application; import javafx. ReadOnlyObjectWrapper; import javafx. Scene; import javafx. Thanks for the example John! I'm coming from C and java is a bit confusing to me. I'm about halfway through the intro to java book by Daniel Liang and I still don't feel like I've learned very much at all.
I'm taking a class but its moving too slow so I'm doing my own projects. I haven't learned yet why some functions have angle brackets, or what generics and collections and factories are.
I'm not sure how much of this is java and how much is the javaFX api. There seems to be 2 schools of thought, one is that swing is dead, don't even bother learning it and just learn javaFX. The other is that javaFX is the dead one, because scene builder is no longer maintained, and etc I'm using eclipse but I'm about to install efx eclipse, wanted to see if the unsupported scenebuilder is in there.
I think that Java is beguiling to the C programmer because it looks very familiar, but actually there is a lot to learn for a C programmer I took the same path. Generics and Collections are part of the java language but, depending on your background, there is usually a lot to learn not least, all the OO stuff before you get on to those topics.
But it would be hard to write FX without understanding them, that's why I mentioned earlier you've chosen a tricky project for a newcomer. But that is not to say its impossible, I just think you might feel you are making rapid progress only to later discover you have missed out on a lot of foundational stuff.
I recommend all of the basic trails at the Oracle Java Tutorial. Well except for the Generics tutorial, but even then initially you only really need to know how to use generics with existing libraries not write new generic libraries, so that is usually quite a bit easier and you don't have to worry if you don't initially get all the generics stuff.
You can write programs without them, but you will start to see them pop up more and more often in sample code and besides, functional programming is fun.
Add new row to TableView : TableView « JavaFX « Java

There was a memory leak that I fixed recently that occurred when items were added to a list that is being used in a TableView or ListView. It should hopefully be part of the next beta release.
If it is still occurring please file a Jira bug along with an application that recreates the issue. I am re-writing a Swing e-trading app that uses heavily JTables - and I was looking, unsuccessfully, for tutorials on the TableView, equivalent to the one in the Java Tutorial renderers, editors, etc. These threads may help: How-to subclass default TableCells correctly?
Jonathan, That could be the issue indeed. What is the policy regarding beta releases? Once a week? Thx v much. Approximately every two weeks we will put out a new beta build.
I am wondering if it is a memory leak due to threading? Pls un-comment line 79 to see the memory bug package org. Map; import java. ConcurrentHashMap; import java. ExecutorService; import java.

Have you tried linking your table view with your fx:id and manipulate that table like on the blog post. Is that article correct for JavaFX 2 and Java 8?? If not a new version would be welcome indeed…. Trackback: greenprint. Maharjan on August 5, - am. But tableView doesnot shows any records.

Did you add cellFactory and cellvaluefactory if your tableview is with custom Object instead of String. Maharjan on January 9, - pm. Hi, this doent work for me, and i do not know why. Hi, I have trouble to run it. What can I do? Maharjan on May 3, - am. First, I want to thank you for the code. I use Netbeans IDE 8 with jdk 1. NullPointerException at dynamictable. Can you help me, please?
It fetches the ResultSet and everything, but… that error stops everything. I have created a netbeans project which shows the table of persons.
My class which displays the TableView implements Initializable interface. On initiation, it takes up the data from the database JavaDB. However, when I add some itmes to the underlying ObservableList, I have different fxml file to create new personI am not able to update the TableView.
I have checked, my ObservableList gets updated but not the table.Alla is a technical writer for Oracle. She lives in St. Prior to her assignment at Oracle, she worked as a technical writer in different IT companies.
Send us feedback about this document. If you have questions about JavaFX, please go to the forum. In this chapter, you learn how to perform basic operations with tables in JavaFX applications, such as adding a table, populating the table with data, and editing table rows. You can populate a table by implementing the data model and by applying a cell factory.
The table classes provide built-in capabilities to sort data in columns and to resize columns when necessary. Figure shows a typical table representing contact information from an address book.
The code fragment in Example creates an empty table with three columns and adds it to the application scene. The table control is created by instantiating the TableView class. In Exampleit is added to the VBox layout container, however, you can add it directly to the application scene. Example defines three columns to store the following information in an address book: a contact's first name and last name, and an email address.
The columns are created by using the TableColumn class. The getColumns method of the TableView class adds the previously created columns to the table. In your applications, you can use this method to dynamically add and remove columns. Compiling and running this application produces the output shown in Figure You can manage visibility of the columns by calling the setVisible method.
For example, if the logic of your application requires hiding user email addresses, you can implement this task as follows: emailCol.
When the structure of your data requires a more complicated representation, you can create nested columns. For example, suppose that the contacts in the address book have two email accounts. Then you need two columns to show the primary and the secondary email addresses.
Release: JavaFX 2.2
Create two subcolumns, and call the getColumns method on emailCol as shown in Example After you have added these lines to Exampleand compiled and run the application code, the table appears as shown in Figure Although the table is added to the application, the standard caption "No content in table" appears, because no data is defined.
Instead of showing this caption, you can use the setPlaceholder method to specify a Node object to appear in an empty table. When you create a table in a JavaFX application, it is a best practice to implement a class that defines the data model and provides methods and fields to further work with the table. Example creates the Person class to define data in an address book. The firstNamelastNameand email string properties are created to enable the referencing of a particular data element.
Additionally, the get and set methods are provided for each data element.Updated in: Aug 5, by Narayan [This update is compatible with new Java 8 codes modified].

In java fxml I am retrieving the data from. I am adding dynamic columns and rows to table view and columns are adding to it but not the rows. I am trying and searching internet but I could not get any suitable result.
What you are missing is a cellValueFactory for your columns that will tell the column what value to display in its cells. Rather than that blog post, this solution uses a test data generator to generate some dummy data and some of the Java 8 lambda features which make the cell value factory definition a bit less unwieldy to write and look at.
