How to set value to cell in TableView in javafx


I am newbie on javafx. I already code in core java to set value to table. But now i am converting my project in javafx to maintain code and to improve design.

I am trying to set value to table view but i am not getting how to set value to tableview.

Here is my code which i am using for swing.

String testbedName = treePath.getPathComponent(1).toString();
    TestBed currentTestbed = getTbF().get(testbedName);
    propertyTable.getModel().setValueAt(currentTestbed.getTestBedName(), 0, 1);
    propertyTable.getModel().setValueAt(currentTestbed.getTestBedFilePath() + "\\" + testbedName + ".xml", 1, 1);
    propertyTable.getModel().setValueAt(currentTestbed.getTbElements().size(), 2, 1);  

But i need to convert this code in javafx means from JTable to TableView. but tableview not find getModel() method.

I search but didn't get how to set value to table view.
Please give me reference or hint.

Thanks in advance.

In JavaFX you generally don't set the values cell by cell like that. In your case, for example, you would

  • place your TestBeds in the table:

    TableView<TestBed> table = new TableView<>();
  • you then create the columns you need, by providing appropriate cell value factories, for example (using Java 8 syntax):

    TableColumn<TestBed, String> name = new TableColumn<>();
    name.setCellValueFactory(c-> new SimpleStringProperty(c.getValue().getTestBedName()));

    If you use Java 7:

    name.setCellValueFactory(new Callback<CellDataFeatures<TestBed, String>, ObservableValue<String>>() {
        @Override public ObservableValue<String> call(CellDataFeatures<TestBed, String> c) {
            return new SimpleStringProperty(c.getValue().getTestBedName()));
  • Finally you add the columns to the table:

    table.getColumns().addAll(name, someOtherColumn);
