How to add a reflection effect to a text node in JavaFX?

JavaFXObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

You can add an effect to any node object in JavaFX using the setEffect() method. This method accepts an object of the Effect class and adds it to the current node.

The reflection effect renders the reflection of the given content below it. The javafx.scene.effect.Reflection represents the reflection effect. To add a blur effect to a text node −

  • Instantiate the Text class bypassing basic the x,y coordinates (position), and text string as arguments to the constructor.

  • Set desired properties like font, stoke, etc..

  • Create a blur effect by instantiating the Reflection class.

  • Set the created effect to the text node using the setEffect() method.

  • Finally, add the created text node to the Group object.

Example

import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.effect.Reflection;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.scene.text.Font;
import javafx.scene.text.FontPosture;
import javafx.scene.text.FontWeight;
import javafx.scene.text.Text;
public class ReflectionEffect extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) throws FileNotFoundException {
      //Creating a text object
      String str = "Welcome to Tutorialspoint";
      Text text = new Text(30.0, 80.0, str);
      //Setting the font
      Font font = Font.font("Brush Script MT", FontWeight.BOLD, FontPosture.REGULAR, 65);
      text.setFont(font);
      //Setting the color of the text
      text.setFill(Color.BROWN);
      //Setting the width and color of the stroke
      text.setStrokeWidth(2);
      text.setStroke(Color.BLUE);
      //Creating the reflection effect
      Reflection reflection = new Reflection();
      reflection.setFraction(0.8);
      //Setting the effect to the text
      text.setEffect(reflection);
      //Setting the stage
      Group root = new Group(text);
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 595, 150, Color.BEIGE);
      stage.setTitle("Reflection Effect");
      stage.setScene(scene);
      stage.show();
   }
   public static void main(String args[]){
      launch(args);
   }
}
