Note from Jim Weaver: Since this was written, an updated version of JavaFX has been released. You can get the new version of JavaFX at at JavaFX.com.
In the Playing with the JavaFX SDK as it's Being Built post I showed you how to get started developing with what will become the JavaFX SDK Preview Release, due in July 2008. Now I'd like to show you a couple of ways to access the JavaFX Script documentation as it's being developed, to help you write JavaFX programs:
- View the online JavaFX Script Documentation page for the latest build.
- Browse the documentation that is included with the download of the latest JavaFX compiler build. Note: At the time of this writing, there is a technology preview branch of the compiler build that may be downloaded here. This branch is what will become the JavaFX SDK Preview Release.
As you can see in the screenshot below, this documentation includes the JavaFX API as well as the JavaFX language reference:
As you're looking at the API documentation, please keep in mind that the UI classes that will be in the JavaFX SDK are in the packages that begin with javafx.gui. The older, prototype UI classes (packages beginning with javafx.ui) will be going away soon.
