      How do i show the filename.type instead of the entire file path?
      I want it to show "ProgramSetup.exe" instead of "C:/Program Files/Oracle/JavaFX/ProgramSetup.exe"

      I have created a JavaFX program with the help of my manager
      below are the code
                     File file = fileChooser.showOpenDialog(Admin.mainStage);
                     if (file != null) {
                          textFiles.setText(file.getAbsolutePath());
                          String absolutePath = file.getAbsolutePath();
                          //String fileName = new File(absolutePath).getName();
      the reason i put the last line as // because it has error on that line....
      if i remove the last line, it will display but with the full path....

      i search through google and the guide on many forums aren't clear to me.....some said there are 2 ways but i tried and it is not working, atleast for me...maybe i left out something or what....can anyone help me on this?
