Setting the Stage

The appearance and functionality of your stage will depend on the platform on which it is deployed. For example, if deployed in a web browser, your stage will be a rectangular area, called an applet, within a web page. The stage for a JavaFX program deployed via Java Web Start will be a window.

Understanding the Stage Class

The Stage class is the top-level container for any JavaFX program that has a graphical UI. It has several properties and methods that allow it, for example, to be positioned, sized, given a title, made invisible, or given some degree of opacity. The two best ways that we know of to learn the capabilities of a class are to study the JavaFX API documentation and to examine (and write) programs that use it. In this section, we ask you to do both, beginning with looking at the API docs.
