Exadel JavaFX Plug-in for Eclipse with JavaFX 1.3 support

I’m happy to announce that we released Exadel JavaFX Plug-in for Eclipse version 1.3 with support for newest JavaFX 1.3.

Download the plug-in and Eclipse update site: http://exadel.org/javafxplugin.

What’s new in this version: http://exadel.org/javafxplugin-releasenotes

We would love to hear you feedback. Let us know how we can improve the plug-in.

Known issues:
– Version 1.3.0 supports both JavaFX 1.3 and 1.2.x. To switch from one JavaFX version to another go to Window/Preferences/JavaFX/Installed JavaFX Runtimes and check the version you want to use. Restart Eclipse. In the next release, we will make it so you don’t have to restart Eclipse.

- When you create a new JavaFX project for the first time and click to add JavaFX SDK, the Configure button doesn’t do anything. It’s a bug. Before creating a project, go to Window/Preferences/JavaFX/Installed JavaFX Runtime and add JavaFX SDK there.

New feature in Exadel JavaFX plug-in for Eclipse: script formatting

JavaFX script is a powerful UI language and has JSON-like format. One thing that you might need getting used to is formatting or where and how to indent and place various brackets once you go beyond just a few lines of code. If you are working with Eclipse, the good news is that Exadel JavaFX plug-in now has a code formatting feature. For example, if you typed something like this:

you can then highlight the code in editor (or just the Stage part), right-click and select Format. You will not get this:

It’s a little bit better. We understand it’s a small feature but we are going to add more in next releases. If you have an idea for a feature, please add it here or here.
