JavaFX Animations - JavaFX

What is JavaFX Animations?

In popular, animating an item implies developing illusion of its motion by rapid show. In JavaFX, a node may be animated through converting its assets over time. JavaFX presents a package named javafx.animation. This package includes lessons that are used to animate the nodes. Animation is the base class of all these classes.

The use of JavaFX, you may observe animations (transitions) including Fade Transition, Fill Transition, Rotate Transition, Scale Transition, Stroke Transition, Translate Transition, direction Transition, Sequential Transition, Pause Transition, Parallel Transition, etc.

All these transitions are represented through individual classes within the package javafx.animation.

To apply a selected animation to a node, you have to follow the steps given under −

  • Create a require node the use of respective class.
  • Instantiate the respective transition (animation) class this is to be applied
  • Set the properties of the transition and
  • Finally play the transition the use of the play() technique of the Animation class.

In this chapter we are going to discuss examples of basic transitions(Rotation, Scaling, Translation).

Rotate Transition

Following is the program which demonstrates Rotate Transition in JavaFX. save this code in a file with the name RotateTransitionExample.java.

Collect and execute the saved java file from the command prompt using the following commands.

On executing, the above program generates a JavaFX window as shown below.

Scale Transition

Following is the program which demonstrates Scale Transition in JavaFX. Save this code in a file with the name ScaleTransitionExample.java.

Collect and execute the saved java file from the command prompt using the following commands.

On executing, the above program generates a JavaFX window as shown below.

Translate Transition

Following is the program which demonstrates Translate Transition in JavaFX. save this code in a report with the name TranslateTransitionExample.java.

Collect and execute the saved java file from the command prompt using the following commands.

On executing, the above program generates a JavaFX window as shown below.

In addition to those, JavaFX presents training to apply more transitions on nodes. the following are the other types of transitions supported through JavaFX.

  • Transitions that consequences the attributes of the nodes Fade, Fill, Stroke
  • Transition that contain more than one basic transitions Sequential, Parallel, Pause
  • Transition that translate the item along the required path path Transition
