How to create a progress bar using JavaFX?

A progress bar is an indicator of the advancement of an event (a series of steps). You can create a progress bar by instantiating the javafx.scene.control.ProgressBar class.


The following Example demonstrates the creation of a ProgressBar.

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.geometry.Insets;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.ProgressBar;
import javafx.scene.control.ProgressIndicator;
import javafx.scene.layout.HBox;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class ProgressBarExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) {
      //Creating a progress bar
      ProgressBar progress = new ProgressBar();
      //Setting value to the progress bar
      //Creating a progress indicator
      ProgressIndicator indicator = new ProgressIndicator(0.6);
      //Setting the size of the progress bar
      progress.setPrefSize(300, 30);
      //Creating a hbox to hold the progress bar and progress indicator
      HBox hbox = new HBox(20);
      hbox.setPadding(new Insets(75, 150, 50, 60));
      hbox.getChildren().addAll(progress, indicator);
      //Setting the stage
      Group root = new Group(hbox);
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 595, 200, Color.BEIGE);
      stage.setTitle("Progress Bar Example");
   public static void main(String args[]){
