Export Stage into PDF


Question

IS there any way to export Stage or some other component like BorderPane with visual components into PDF file? I want when I click a button to export the component into PDF file? IS there any example?

You can use PDFBox libreries in your javafx project . this code take a snapshot from a node , make an image file , then create a pdf file and insert the image in the pdf file . you need this .jar http://www-us.apache.org/dist/pdfbox/2.0.8/pdfbox-app-2.0.8.jar . with pdfbox you can pass strings of javafx to text in pdf , you can do many things ( change font , size .... )
