I created my own chart with x and y axises. I found the present choices of charts did not suite my needs. I have managed to built my chart to my likings and now I would like to add all the components to an object that extends AnchorPane. The end results is that my code compiles with no errors, no runtime errors but I don't see any of my panes that I created. I was wondering what the correct procedure is to extend AnchorPane.
