What is the best way to get absolute position of a node in JavaFX ?
Suppose we have a node in a a pane(Hbox, Stackpane , ...or any other pane) and that may have parent itself.
I want to get abosolute position of that node and use it in another pane ?
It depends a little what you mean by "absolute". There is a coordinate system for the node, a coordinate system for its parent, one for its parent, and so on, and eventually a coordinate system for the
Scene and one for the screen (which is potentially a collection of physical display devices).
You probably either want the coordinates relative to the
Scene, in which case you could do
Bounds boundsInScene = node.localToScene(node.getBoundsInLocal());
or the coordinates relative to the screen:
Bounds boundsInScreen = node.localToScreen(node.getBoundsInLocal());
In either case the resulting
Bounds object has
