A javaFX Stage could be both StageStyle.UTILITY and StageStyle.TRANSPARENT?


I mean that when using a stage with stageStyle.UTILITY, I don't want to show the "solid white background " but a transparent background.

I need a stage doesn't shown on the windows' task bar below(stageStyle.UTILITY can satisfy), and I need a transparent background(StageStyle.TRANSPARENT can satisfy)so that I can define the close button style of my stage.

But it seems strange that stageStyle.UTILITY or StageStyle.TRANSPARENT only fit one of my request.

Thank you.

It is not yet possible in javafx but javafx is swing compatible so you can use swing to make a swing equivalent to a transparent utility stage. See here for some examples. I hope that this helps.
