    public static void main(String[] args) {

    public void start(Stage stage) {
        rText = new TextField("updated right1 updated right2 updated right3 updated right4");

        Button btn = new Button("update");
        btn.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {
            public void handle(ActionEvent t) {
                rText.setText("updated right1 updated right2 updated right3 updated right4");

          btn2.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {

              public void handle(ActionEvent event) {
                  FileChooser fileChooser = new FileChooser();

                  //Set extension filter
                  FileChooser.ExtensionFilter extFilter = new FileChooser.ExtensionFilter("AVI files (*.exml)", "*.exml");

                  //Show open file dialog
                  file = fileChooser.showOpenDialog(null);

//                rText.setText(file.getPath());

        VBox root = new VBox();
        root.getChildren().addAll(rText, btn, btn2);

        stage.setScene(new Scene(root, 200, 300));

Put the setalignment and settext after you add the TextField to the Scene.

Ref: Java API docs for Node

Node objects may be constructed and modified on any thread as long they are not yet attached to a Scene. An application must attach nodes to a Scene, and modify nodes that are already attached to a Scene, on the JavaFX Application Thread.
