How to create a label using JavaFX?

JavaFXObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

You can display a text element/image on the User Interface using the Label component. It is a not editable text control, mostly used to specify the purpose of other nodes in the application.

In JavaFX, you can create a label by instantiating the javafx.scene.control.Label class.

Just like a text node you can set the desired font to the text node in JavaFX using the setFont() method and, you can add color to it using the setFill() method.

To create a label −

  • Instantiate the Label class.

  • Set the required properties to it.

  • Add the label to the scene.

Example

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
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 LabelExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) {
      //Creating a Label
      Label label = new Label("Sample label");
      //Setting font to the label
      Font font = Font.font("Brush Script MT", FontWeight.BOLD, FontPosture.REGULAR, 25);
      label.setFont(font);
      //Filling color to the label
      label.setTextFill(Color.BROWN);
      //Setting the position
      label.setTranslateX(150);
      label.setTranslateY(25);
      Group root = new Group();
      root.getChildren().add(label);
      //Setting the stage
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 595, 150, Color.BEIGE);
      stage.setTitle("Label Example");
      stage.setScene(scene);
      stage.show();
   }
   public static void main(String args[]){
      launch(args);
   }
}
