JavaFX[1.3] – Power of CSS

There was a question related to setting of background color for TreeView. Yes we can do lot of customization of Controls using CSS. It may be a bit difficult at this point of time due to lack of proper documentation. But you can start playing with CSS using StyleEditor sample.

Below samples shows ListView and TreeView customized using javafx.css file.
Thanks to Jasper Potts for help

For Applet mode, click on above image. For standalone mode

Try it out and let me know feedback
It will be much much easier once the official documentation is in place..

    Hi Rakesh,
    thanks for your work!
    Do you know to set the dropdown list height of the ChoiceBox control? Because for the moment , it takes the full height of the scene (when you have a lot of items in the list)

    Thanks for your help!
