How to create a text field using JavaFX?

The text field accepts and displays the text. In the latest versions of JavaFX, it accepts only a single line. In JavaFX the javafx.scene.control.TextField class represents the text field, this class inherits the TextInputControl (base class of all the text controls) class. Using this you can accept input from the user and read it to your application.

To create a text field, you need to instantiate the TextField class, to the constructor of this class you can also pass a string value which will be the initial text of the text field.


import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.geometry.Insets;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.control.TextField;
import javafx.scene.layout.HBox;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class TextFieldExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) {
      //Creating nodes
      TextField textField1 = new TextField("Enter your name");
      TextField textField2 = new TextField("Enter your e-mail");
      //Creating labels
      Label label1 = new Label("Name: ");
      Label label2 = new Label("Email: ");
      //Adding labels for nodes
      HBox box = new HBox(5);
      box.setPadding(new Insets(25, 5 , 5, 50));
      box.getChildren().addAll(label1, textField1, label2, textField2);
      //Setting the stage
      Scene scene = new Scene(box, 595, 150, Color.BEIGE);
      stage.setTitle("Text Field Example");
   public static void main(String args[]){
