I'm just getting into using fxml and it seems like a really cool idea, except for the fact that I'm having a tough time getting it to work. Supposedly I'm able to lay out my GUI using a nice markup language, and I can style the elements via CSS. So I have a label on my GUI, and I would like there to be a solid black border around it, with width=1. Seems like this should be straightforward -- adapting examples I see here and there in tutorials, etc., I do the following:
<Label text="sample text" style="-fx-border-width: 1; -fx-border-style: solid;" />
But it doesn't work. No border appears. In the Scene Builder there is a text box labelled "Style" in the properties inspector, and I can see the style I have applied appear there, but I don't see a border.
What am I overlooking?
You need to specify the Border Color as well. Add this to your
In your case the sample code will be :
<Label text="sample text" style=" -fx-border-color:black; -fx-border-width: 1; -fx-border-style: solid;" />
