JavaFX: Setting up list view

This entry is part 36 of 55 in the series JavaFX

List view displays a list of items and there are many controls that we can use to set the display of the list items.

Here we display a list in vertical mode and we can set the max height of the list since we know that there are only 3 items in the list.

package javafxapplication29;
import javafx.application.Application;
import static javafx.application.Application.launch;
import javafx.geometry.Insets;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.control.ListView;
import javafx.scene.layout.HBox;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class JavaFXApplication29 extends Application {
    public void start(Stage stage) {
        stage.setTitle("JavaFX Program!");
        ListView<String> lv = new ListView<String>();
        HBox hboxPane = new HBox(10); // spacing = 10       
        hboxPane.setPadding(new Insets(10, 10, 10, 10));
        Label lb = new Label("Selection:");
        hboxPane.getChildren().addAll(lb, lv);
        Scene scene = new Scene(hboxPane, 400, 300);
    public static void main(String[] args) {
