JavaFX Scene Builder is a visual layout tool for designing JavaFX user interfaces. IntelliJ IDEA is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java development.
IntelliJ IDEA has built-in support for JavaFX and allows you to create JavaFX applications directly within the IDE. It also has integration with JavaFX Scene Builder, which means you can open and edit FXML files (which define the UI layout and components) in Scene Builder directly from within IntelliJ IDEA.
To use JavaFX Scene Builder with IntelliJ IDEA, you can follow these steps:
- Download and install JavaFX Scene Builder from the official website.
- Open IntelliJ IDEA and create a new JavaFX project.
- Create an FXML file by right-clicking on the project folder, selecting New -> FXML File.
- Open the FXML file in Scene Builder by right-clicking on the file and selecting Open In Scene Builder.
- Edit the UI in Scene Builder and save the changes.
- Switch back to IntelliJ IDEA and the changes will be automatically reflected in the FXML file.
You can also use Scene Builder to create custom controls and import them into IntelliJ IDEA for use in your JavaFX application. Overall, JavaFX Scene Builder and IntelliJ IDEA work well together to provide a streamlined development experience for JavaFX applications.
