I'm currently working on a desktop app using javafx. IN the introductory screen, I have a form where the user would fill in various information, and then submit the form contents to a new screen, discarding the old screen as the user would not be heading back there in the application logic flow. However I'm at a loss as to how this would be done. I was thinking it would be like Android where I could call a get new screen function, calling the class for the new screen's constructor and it'd pass over to there, but when trying that, it just created a new window, which obviously isn't what I'm after. Was wondering if anyone knew of a better way that I could move the application to a new screen, and still easily pass the form information over to that screen for further processing.
I myself made a login screen based somewhat on those codes as well as another one that I cant remember at the moment, but how I went about it is as follows...
Key parts in my main class are
This is only part of the code I have used and is also only from my main class, but what I have done is when the program starts it does the gotoLogin first. The login screen's controller is made aware of the main screen via the method shown in Angela's blog, and when a user successfully logs in the controller calls on the main screen's method of gotoClientHome and pass it a user object. In your case you would be passing the information that the user had entered.
