How to create a TabPane in JavaFX?

JavaFXObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

A TabPane is a GUI component using which you can load multiple documents in a single window. A tab pane has a title area and a content area, you can switch between tabs by clicking on their respective title. You can create tab pane by instantiating the javafx.scene.control.TabPane class.

Creating Tabs

Each tab in a tab-pane is represented by the javafx.scene.control.Tab class, you can set the title and content of a tab using the setText() and setContent() methods of this class respectively.

Once you create all the required tabs you need to add them to the pane as −

tabPane.getTabs().addAll(tab1, tab2);

Example

Following JavaFX program demonstrates the creation of a TabPane.

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Tab;
import javafx.scene.control.TabPane;
import javafx.scene.image.Image;
import javafx.scene.image.ImageView;
import javafx.scene.layout.AnchorPane;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class TabPaneExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) throws FileNotFoundException {
      //Creating ImageView object1
      Image img1 = new Image(new FileInputStream("D:\\images\\elephant.jpg"));
      ImageView view1 = new ImageView(img1);
      view1.setFitWidth(595);
      view1.setFitHeight(270);
      //Creating ImageView object2
      Image img2 = new Image(new FileInputStream("D:\\images\\boy.jpg"));
      ImageView view2 = new ImageView(img2);
      view2.setFitWidth(595);
      view2.setFitHeight(270);
      //Creating a TabPane
      TabPane tabPane = new TabPane();
      //Creating the first tab
      Tab tab1 = new Tab();
      //Setting the text
      tab1.setText("Elephant");
      //Setting the content
      tab1.setContent(view1);
      //Creating the second tab
      Tab tab2 = new Tab();
      //Setting the text
      tab2.setText("Boy");
      //Setting the content
      tab2.setContent(view2);
      //Adding tabs to the tab pane
      tabPane.getTabs().addAll(tab1, tab2);
      //Setting anchor pane as the layout
      AnchorPane pane = new AnchorPane();
      AnchorPane.setTopAnchor(tabPane, 15.0);
      AnchorPane.setRightAnchor(tabPane, 15.0);
      AnchorPane.setBottomAnchor(tabPane, 15.0);
      AnchorPane.setLeftAnchor(tabPane, 15.0);
      pane.getChildren().addAll(tabPane);
      pane.setStyle("-fx-background-color: BEIGE");
      //Setting the stage
      Scene scene = new Scene(pane, 595, 300);
      stage.setTitle("Tab Pane");
      stage.setScene(scene);
      stage.show();
   }
   public static void main(String args[]){
      launch(args);
   }
}
