How to create a ColorPicker using JavaFX?

A color picker gives you a standard color palette fro which you can select a required color. You can create a color picker by instantiating the javafx.scene.control.ColorPicker class.


The following Example demonstrates the creation of a ColorPicker.

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.geometry.Insets;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.ColorPicker;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.layout.HBox;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.scene.text.Font;
import javafx.scene.text.FontPosture;
import javafx.scene.text.FontWeight;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class ColorPickerExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) {
      //Setting the label
      Label label = new Label("Select Desired Color:");
      Font font = Font.font("verdana", FontWeight.BOLD, FontPosture.REGULAR, 12);
      //Creating a Color picker
      ColorPicker picker = new ColorPicker();
      //Creating a hbox to hold the pagination
      HBox hbox = new HBox();
      hbox.setPadding(new Insets(25, 50, 50, 60));
      hbox.getChildren().addAll(label, picker);
      //Setting the stage
      Group root = new Group(hbox);
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 595, 300, Color.BEIGE);
      stage.setTitle("Color Picker");
   public static void main(String args[]){
