JavaFX TableView is used to represent the data in tabular form.

Means it is an extend version of list in which multiple columns supported.

Constructors of Table view:

  • TableView()
    Creates a default TableView control with no content.
  • TableView(ObservableList<S> items)
    Creates a TableView with the content provided in the items ObservableList.

Create TableView :

TableView table=new TableView();

Create column for TableView :

TableColumn cityCol = new TableColumn("Name");

Add the columns using getColumnd().addAll().

Example using table view :


package javafxtuts;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.TableColumn;
import javafx.scene.control.TableView;
import javafx.scene.layout.StackPane;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
/**
 *
 * @author javafxtuts
 */
public class Javafxtuts extends Application {

  @Override
  public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
      
      // setting title of application
      primaryStage.setTitle("javafxtuts.com");
      
      TableView table=new TableView();
      //create columns
      TableColumn NameCol = new TableColumn("Name");
      //create sub columns
      TableColumn fNameCol = new TableColumn("First Name");
      TableColumn lNameCol = new TableColumn("Last Name");
      //Add sub columns to the NameCol
      NameCol.getColumns().addAll(fNameCol, lNameCol);
      TableColumn addressCol = new TableColumn("Address");
     //add all column to table
      table.getColumns().addAll(NameCol,addressCol);
      
    
    //create a layout Pane
    StackPane root = new StackPane();
    root.getChildren().add(table);
     
      

      //to create a scene using sp
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 250, 300);
      primaryStage.setScene(scene);
      primaryStage.show();
  }
    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }
}
