Program to create Progress indicator: This program creates a progress indicator indicated by the name pb. The progress indicator will be created inside a scene, which in turn will be hosted inside a stage. The function setTitle() is used to provide title to the stage. Then a tile pane is created, on which addChildren() method is called to attach the progress indicator and the button inside the scene. Finally the show() method is called to display the final results.





// Java program to illustrate the use of Progress Indicator
import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.*;
import javafx.scene.layout.*;
import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
import javafx.event.EventHandler;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class progressi extends Application {
    static double ii = 0;
    // launch the application
    public void start(Stage s) throws Exception
        // set title for the stage
        s.setTitle("creating progressIndicator");
        // create a progress indicator
        ProgressIndicator pb = new ProgressIndicator();
        // create a tile pane
        TilePane r = new TilePane();
        // action event
        EventHandler<ActionEvent> event = new EventHandler<ActionEvent>() {
            public void handle(ActionEvent e)
                // set progress to different level of progressindicator
                ii += 0.1;
        // creating button
        Button b = new Button("increase");
        // set on action
        // add button
        // create a scene
        Scene sc = new Scene(r, 200, 200);
