Window Control (VFXWindows) on JDK 8
I have a Macbook Pro with Retina display. Unfortunately, JavaFX 2.x does not support Retina resolution. But the preview builds of JDK/JavaFX 8 do! This was motivation enough to start porting the JFXtras window control to JDK 8. Actually, it was a lot easier than I thought. And the preview builds of JDK/JavaFX 8 are amazing! It’s not only the Retina support but also the improvements to the WebView node. To me it seems to be a lot faster and more responsive. However, the Webview still needs some work. It looks blurry.
Here are some first impressions on how sharp the user interface is:
Please tell me If you are interested in demo projects! The code is in the window-8.0 branch of my forked JFXtras repo on GitHub.
Unfortunately I am very busy with other stuff. So I can’t spend as much time on JFXtras and the window control as I’d like. And that’s mostly because I have to implement my other stuff stuff over and over again. Why? Because there is no JDK on mobile platforms!
