InvocationTargetException in javafx

@FXML
public void seleccionar() throws IOException {
FXMLLoader loader = new FXMLLoader();
Parent root = loader.load(getClass().getResource("/vistas/RegistrarCita.fxml"));
RegistrarCitaControladora rcc = loader.getController();
Paciente paciente = pc.fromString(listView.getSelectionModel().getSelectedItem());
Stage stage = (Stage) anchorPanePaciente.getScene().getWindow();
System.out.println(paciente.getNombre());
rcc.getTxtFieldNombre().setText(paciente.getNombre());
stage.close();
}


I have this method that is trying to update a
textfield
from a parent class. I have tried lots of things and none of them are working. And sometimes when I don't get the exception that
textfield
doesn't update, when I debug the application it says that the
textfield
has the value but simply is not showing it.

Any ideas what or why is causing that?

Here is the stacktrace:

Answer

The reason for the NullPointerException is as follows:

You are calling the static method FXMLLoader.load(URL). Since this method is static, it doesn't affect the state of the FXMLLoader instance you created. Consequently, loader.getController() returns null.

You need to set the location on the FXMLLoader instance and call the instance method FXMLLoader.load():

@FXML
public void seleccionar() throws IOException {
    FXMLLoader loader = new FXMLLoader();
    loader.setLocation(getClass().getResource("/vistas/RegistrarCita.fxml")) ;
    Parent root = loader.load();
    RegistrarCitaControladora rcc = loader.getController();

    // ...
}

or more succinctly:

@FXML
public void seleccionar() throws IOException {
    FXMLLoader loader = new FXMLLoader(getClass().getResource("/vistas/RegistrarCita.fxml"));
    Parent root = loader.load();
    RegistrarCitaControladora rcc = loader.getController();

    // ...
}

However, there is still something strange in your code, as you are loading the FXML but never displaying it. So it's not really clear what the code will achieve (as you appear to be changing a text field that is never displayed). The above will fix the exception, however, and maybe you omitted some other code where the UI you loaded from the FXML was displayed.
