NullPointerException when FxRobot is used to click on a textarea

User_M6UNH

I am just getting started with JavaFX, and am trying to test a simple JavaFX UI using the FxRobot in TestFX.

Here is the UI:

When I add the line

robot.clickOn(courseNameField).write("Physics");

in my tests, I get a NullPointerException. Why is this, and how can I fix it?

Here is how I instantiate my text field:

TextField courseNameField = coursesView.getTfName();

And my start method:

public class CoursesViewTest {
    App app;
    CoursesFormView coursesView;

    @Start
    protected void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {
        app = new App(stage);
        coursesView = new CoursesFormView(app);
        stage.setScene(app.getScene());
        stage.show();
    }

Here is the stack trace.

Cannot invoke "javafx.scene.Scene.getWindow()" because the return value of "javafx.scene.Node.getScene()" is null

I am not sure what to do here, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
