JavaFX 2: How to Load Image

This is JavaFX tutorial about how to load a image in your JavaFX 2 application. This can be done easily with ImageView. The ImageView is a Node used for painting images loaded with Image class. So as you can se we will first load image with Image class and then display it with ImageView. Also I will here demonstrate how to load image from local disk, and how to load image from Internet. First example is how to load an image from disk, then I’ll show how to modify it, to load image from Internet.

    import javafx.scene.image.Image;
    import javafx.scene.image.ImageView;

    */
    public class LoadImage extends Application {
            /**
            * @param args the command line arguments
            */
            public static void main(String[] args) {
            Application.launch(args);
            }
            @Override
            public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
            primaryStage.setTitle("Load Image");

            StackPane sp = new StackPane();
            Image img = new Image("javafx.jpg");
            ImageView imgView = new ImageView(img);
            sp.getChildren().add(imgView);

            //Adding HBox to the scene
            Scene scene = new Scene(sp);
            primaryStage.setScene(scene);
            primaryStage.show();
    }
    }

Okay, what if you want to load a image from some Internet location? Well, that can be also easily done, just modify this line of code. The result will be same.

    Image img = new Image("http://mikecann.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/javafx_logo_color_1.jpg");
