Cannot locate the fxml error for JavaFX


Question

I'm trying to implement solution for multi-language support as described here.

But I'm getting "java.lang.NullPointerException: Location is required." Please point out the flaw(s) in following relevant code. Thanks

MultiLanguageSupport.java

public class MultiLingualSupport extends Application {

Stage currentStage;
void setStage(Stage stage)
{
    currentStage=stage;
}
@Override
public void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {

    setStage(stage);
    replaceScene("LanguageUIFXML.fxml",this,new Locale("en","EN"));

}


public static void main(String[] args) {
    launch(args);
}
public void replaceScene(String fxml, Object aThis, Locale locale) //throws Exception
{
    System.out.println("Replacing Scene");
   try 
   {
       Parent root;
       FXMLLoader loader=new FXMLLoader();
       loader.setResources(ResourceBundle.getBundle("TextData.AllText", locale));
       root = loader.load(this.getClass().getResource(fxml),null, new JavaFXBuilderFactory());
       Scene scene=currentStage.getScene();
       if(scene==null)
       {
           scene=new Scene(root);
           currentStage.setScene(scene);
       }
       else
           currentStage.getScene().setRoot(root);

       currentStage.sizeToScene();
       currentStage.show();
   }
   catch (IOException ex) 
   {
       ex.printStackTrace();
   }


}
}

Accepted Answer

Well sorry this was result of 2 spelling mistakes & one incorrect path for css. Required changes: In fxml file, what should've been:

<URL value="@/css/langageuifxml.css" />

was actually

<URL value="@css/langageuifxml.css" />

Can you verify the FXML file and the MultiLingualSupport class are in the same package?

Also you are calling a static method of non-static instantiated fxmlloader where you are setting the ResourceBundle to null again after setting it by

loader.setResources(ResourceBundle.getBundle("TextData.AllText", locale));

Can you try

root = (AnchorPane) loader.load(this.getClass().getResource(fxml).openStream());
