The JavaFX 8 API, which is bundled with JDK 8, contains a new UI control known as the DatePicker. This video demonstrates how to use NetBeans 7.4 beta to create a JavaFX application from scratch that contains a DatePicker. It also touches on using Java lambda expressions to simplify event handling. In addition, the new date/time API is discussed, and the JFXtras CalendarPicker is demonstrated.
Note: In the video, my statement that "DatePicker extends ComboBox" should have been "DatePicker extends ComboBoxBase".
