Reopen of RT-11886, JFXPanel does not work


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: P1
    • Resolution: Duplicate
    • Affects Version/s: fx2.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: javafx
    • Environment:

      both Windows 7 and Mac OS X


      I am unable to get the JFXPanel to work in the latest build (b21).

      The API documentation example was cutoff, so that was of no help. Instead, I followed Irina's guide (javafx-sdk2.0-ea/docs/javafx/2.0/swing/jfxpub-swing.htm).

      I reproduced her example as closely as possible, and was unable to get it to work (the result was a gray JPanel window with no contents). If you launch the same JavaFX scene in a normal Application it works fine.

      I tested this on Windows and Mac. Surprisingly the results on both were different, but in neither case did it actually work. Full project is attached as a zip, and a screenshot of the results on Windows is attached as well.
