CSS Question

Make Default Buttons Look Like Normal Buttons

I have a JavaFX button that has been set as Default Button so the user can select it with the Enter key. Currently, it has a blue background:

But I'd like to make it look like a normal button:

But changing this feature has unpredictable effects—sometimes it eliminates the button's gradient; sometimes it makes the button transparent.

Is there a simple way to just get rid of the Default Button styling?


My guess is that you are looking in the wrong style sheet. The old default style sheet caspian.css was replaced with modena.css. So setting default value for -fx-base from modena.css should fix the issue:

.button:default {
    -fx-base: #ececec;
