Hi everybody...

Is it possible to extend javafx Scene Builder in any of these ways:
1. Adding custom control to palette?
- I know that I can import my custom component in FXML and Scene Builder will show it, but there is no way to add custom component on palette ???
2. Reading custom file format
- For instance, I have .fxml file in .zip file. That .zip file can contain additional files. Is there a way to learn scene builder how to open that .zip file and render .fxml ???

Thanks in advance !!!

No.

A custom control palette is not supported in SceneBuilder 1.x, maybe in SceneBuilder 2.x or later such a feature might be implemented.

  • DTL-5160 extension or plugin support
  • DTL-5348 Using third party components on Scene Builder


  • > 2. Reading custom file format

    No.

    SceneBuilder only supports the FXML file format.

    If you wanted to work with a different file format, you would have to create an external tool which converted that format to FXML so that SceneBuilder can work with it, then, after the FXML is updated and save in SceneBuilder, run the external tool again to convert the FXML file updated by SceneBuilder back to your required format.
