After investigating this...each textfield shows only one letter. I am setting setPrefColumnCount(1) for each textfield. Probably the problem is now, that after insertion of a character in a textfield, the cursor stands one position to the right and the content is not visible. After gaining the focus, the textfield shows its content because of setting the cursor position. How can I set the position of the cursor in a textfield?
Have you checked the propeties of the TextField, if you have a scenebuilder?
Check whether the TextFiled is Laid out in the front or the back.
Have to explain my use case in more detail. I do not use scenebuilder for this. My aim is to create a textfield on which I can style each character. The standard textfield does not support this and the HTMLEditor or WebView I have to deal with the html stuff and the text gets mixed up with html and content.
So I wrote a little prototype....a Region Contains a HBox in which I create TextFields. One text field for earch character. Now I have to implement some behaviour like arrow keys, delete...
It works so far, but randomly there are some text fields which are displaying not the character. The text field gets updated when I set the cursor in it.
But I have observed something with the visually empty text fields. There are some pixels on the left side of the text field. So I suggest that the text field show the right end of the content. E. g. there is "d" in the field....in the case that I see nothing, the zone after the d is shown. If I select the content of the text field, the text field view show the d correctly. I have no idea to say the text field "show me the 1st position of the string". This would be sufficient because in my case there is only 1 character inside the field.
Got the problem. I set for each text field setPrefColumnCount(1). The text fields are changing their sizes if in the CSS the font size is changed, but sometimes the letter does not fit in the text fields and the effect I described occurs. Tested it with setPrefColumnCount(2) and it work correctly but the text fields are too wide of course.
you can use setPrefWidth to set the width of the text fields instead setPrefColumnCount
