JavaFX how to change stage


Question

I'm using Netbeans 7.2 with Scene Builder 1.0 to develop a JavaFX application. I have my main screen set up, and I want to have it so I click a button and it'll close the main window and open another. The main Stage object is located in the main class, but the controller class is separate, and can't access it since it's not static and in a different class. How do I change the scene or stage?

I'm probably saying something similar here, but this is how I do it:

(In this example, I am transitioning from Login.fxml to Home.fxml).

Inside the LoginController.fxml class, I have created the following method:

@FXML
private void login(javafx.event.ActionEvent event) throws IOException
{
    if(pwf1.getText().equals("dolphin"))
    {
            Parent blah = FXMLLoader.load(getClass().getResource("Home.fxml"));
            Scene scene = new Scene(blah);
            Stage appStage = (Stage) ((Node) event.getSource()).getScene().getWindow();
            appStage.setScene(scene);
            appStage.show();
    }
    else
    {
            label1.setText("Password is incorrect. Please Try Again");
    }
}

And that's it.;)
