New features for the application.
Improved performance and some nice additional features to help the user finding the errors.
A simple JavaFX application to load, save and edit a CSV file and provide a JSON configuration for columns to check the values in the columns.
At work I have the need to fix wrong CSV files from customers. It is hard to find the errors and fix them in a texteditor, even in a “normal” CSV editor. So I decided to write this simple JavaFX application.
GeoFroggerFX with some improvements in performance and design.
I rewrote the GeoFroggerFX application for several reasons.
Usage of H2 as database and JPA.
I added H2 Database, JPA and a groovy plugin interface to the application.
GeoFroggerFX is now an open source application.
This is the second preview of GeoFroggerFX my little geocaching application written in JavaFX.
GeoFroggerFX can handle a lot of items.
This little video shows a preview of the GeoFroggerFX application handling more than 10.000 items in the ListView. Currently the items are read and parsed from a gpx file with 124Mb and the domain objects are still in memory.
This post shows the change of a simple list to a multiline list with icons.
I have a list of geocaches in my GeoFroggerFX (replacement for my GeoCachingFrogger based on Netbeans) which should provide more information in a row.
Refactored the control to add it to the JFXtras project.
Jonathan Giles wrote in his Blog that
This kind of code should be polished and added to the JFXtras project!
So I thought this would be a good start to learn more about JavaFX internals and how to do it the right way. There is a talk at parleys where Jasper Potts and Jonathan Giles talk about creating a custom UI control. I wish I had seen this earlier.
A button with different effects to support the user experience.
In the last JavaFX blog post I showed how a button with an glowing effect can be used to catch the users attention. In this blog post I develop a button based on StackPane to have a normal button in the back and an optional animating image icon in the front.
At sLAB we use glowing icon buttons on the dashboard to get the users attention.
These buttons inform the user that there is some waiting work which has to be finished or some incoming messages are waiting.
