JavaFX: Button Sample

There is a button sample from Oracle website and I tested running it just to see its output.

If you have like to use images for your buttons, you can refer to this example.

        launch(args);

        stage.setHeight(300);

        label.setFont(Font.font("Times New Roman", 22));
        label.setTextFill(color);

        Image imageDecline = new Image(getClass().getResourceAsStream("orange.png"));
        Image imageAccept = new Image(getClass().getResourceAsStream("green.png"));

        button1.setStyle("-fx-font: 22 arial; -fx-base: #b6e7c9;");
        
        button1.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {

                    }
                });

        hbox1.getChildren().add(button2);
        hbox1.getChildren().add(button3);
        hbox1.getChildren().add(label);
        hbox1.setSpacing(10);
        hbox1.setAlignment(Pos.BOTTOM_CENTER);

        Button button4 = new Button();
        button4.setGraphic(new ImageView(imageAccept));
        button4.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {

        Button button5 = new Button();
        button5.setGraphic(new ImageView(imageDecline));
        button5.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {

                label.setText("Declined");

        });

        hbox2.getChildren().add(button4);
        hbox2.getChildren().add(button5);
        hbox2.setSpacing(25);

        vbox.getChildren().add(button1);
        vbox.getChildren().add(hbox1);
        vbox.getChildren().add(hbox2);
        vbox.setSpacing(10);
        ((Group) scene.getRoot()).getChildren().add(vbox);

        stage.setScene(scene);
        stage.show();
    }
}

Below screenshot is the output from running the program.
