ScalaFX 16.0.0-R25 supports JavaFX 16. This release was tested to work with Java 11 and Java 16. It can be used with Scala 2.12, 2.13, and Scala 3.

The main new feature of this release is the simpler way to crate custom cellFactory (Issue #256). The JavaFX boilerplate code generation was moved behind the scenes. A correct cellFactory can be defined with a simple lambda. For instance, here we render a cell content as a Circle of a given color:

cellFactory = (cell, color) => {
  cell.graphic = Circle(fill = color, radius = 8)

Compare to the more verbose way that had to be done in previous versions to endure that empty cells are rendered correctly:

cellFactory = { _ =>
  new TableCell[Person, Color] {
    item.onChange { (_, _, newColor) =>
      graphic =
        if (newColor != null)
          new Circle {
            fill = newColor
            radius = 8

You can find a brief description here. There are several examples of how to use cellFactory use with different controls in scalafx-demos.

Note that if you use the old way of assigning cellFactory you will need to be more explicit and provide type annotations for lambda arguments. Without that some old code may not compile with 16.0.0-R25.

New Features
