JavaFX ProgressBar Example

In this JavaFX source code example, we will see how to use the JavaFX ProgressBar control with an example.

ProgressBar is a control that indicates the processing of a particular task with a completion bar.

JavaFX ProgressBar Example

The example consists of a progress bar and a button. The button starts the progress bar that is animated for a few seconds.

        var root = new HBox(15);
        root.setPadding(new Insets(10));

        var pbar = new ProgressBar(0);

        var frame1 = new KeyFrame(Duration.ZERO,
                new KeyValue(pbar.progressProperty(), 0));

        var frame2 = new KeyFrame(Duration.seconds(15),
                new KeyValue(pbar.progressProperty(), 1));

        var task = new Timeline(frame1, frame2);

        var btn = new Button("Start");
        btn.setOnAction((ActionEvent actionEvent) -> task.playFromStart());

        root.getChildren().addAll(pbar, btn);

        var scene = new Scene(root);
