Java Question

java.lang.NullPointerException: Location is required

This is my Main Class

package application;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.fxml.FXMLLoader;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.scene.Parent;
import javafx.scene.Scene;

public class Main extends Application {

@Override
public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
try {
Parent root = FXMLLoader.load(getClass().getResource("application/anwendung.fxml"));
primaryStage.setTitle("Benutzerverwaltung");
root.getStylesheets().add(getClass().getResource("application.css").toExternalForm());
primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(root));
primaryStage.show();
} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
launch(args);
}
}


This is my Controller class

package application;

import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
import javafx.fxml.FXML;
import javafx.scene.Node;
import javafx.scene.control.Button;
import javafx.scene.input.InputEvent;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

class AnwendungsController {

@FXML
public Button closeButton;


@FXML
public void handleCloseButtonAction(ActionEvent event) {
Stage stage = (Stage) closeButton.getScene().getWindow();
stage.close();
}
}


And this is my fxml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?import javafx.scene.control.Button?>
<?import javafx.scene.control.Label?>
<?import javafx.scene.layout.AnchorPane?>
<?import javafx.scene.text.Font?>

<AnchorPane prefHeight="140.0" prefWidth="350.0" xmlns="http://javafx.com/javafx/8.0.60" xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/fxml/1" fx:controller="application.AnwendungsController">
<children>
<Button fx:id="closeButton" layoutX="18.0" layoutY="100.0" mnemonicParsing="false" onAction="#handleCloseButtonAction" onMouseClicked="#onMouseClickedCancelBtn" prefHeight="26.0" prefWidth="77.0" text="Abbrechen" />
<Label layoutX="10.0" layoutY="27.0" prefHeight="27.0" prefWidth="342.0" text="Sie können das System nun verwenden" textAlignment="CENTER" textOverrun="CLIP">
<font>
<Font name="System Bold" size="18.0" />
</font>
</Label>
</children>
</AnchorPane>


How can I fix it? I try everything from here JavaFX "Location is required." even though it is in the same package

UPDATE:

java.lang.NullPointerException: Location is required.

Answer

Two problems existed:

1)The File path

2)The Controller was not set properly

Reccomendation:

If you are using SceneBuilder , when you want to see how your controller would be you can go at View -> Show Sample Controller Skeleton -> Copy -> Paste -> Enjoy Life (until next error occurs :|| )


  • Solution

Main class:

package application;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.fxml.FXMLLoader;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
import javafx.scene.Parent;
import javafx.scene.Scene;

public class Main extends Application {

    @Override
    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        try {
            System.out.println(getClass().getResource("anwendung.fxml").getPath());

            //other solution
            //FXMLLoader loader = new FXMLLoader(getClass().getResource("anwendung.fxml"));
            //Parent root = loader.load();

            //Keep in mind that you are calling a static method
            Parent root = FXMLLoader.load(getClass().getResource("anwendung.fxml"));

            primaryStage.setTitle("Benutzerverwaltung");
            root.getStylesheets().add(getClass().getResource("application.css").toExternalForm());
            primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(root));
            primaryStage.show();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }
}

Controller:

package application;

import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
import javafx.fxml.FXML;
import javafx.scene.control.Button;
import javafx.scene.input.MouseEvent;

public class AnwendungsController {

    @FXML
    private Button closeButton;

    @FXML
    void handleCloseButtonAction(ActionEvent event) {

    }

    @FXML
    void onMouseClickedCancelBtn(MouseEvent event) {

    }

}

FXML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?import javafx.scene.control.Button?>
<?import javafx.scene.control.Label?>
<?import javafx.scene.layout.AnchorPane?>
<?import javafx.scene.text.Font?>

<AnchorPane prefHeight="140.0" prefWidth="350.0" xmlns="http://javafx.com/javafx/8.0.60" xmlns:fx="http://javafx.com/fxml/1" fx:controller="application.AnwendungsController">
  <children>
   <Button fx:id="closeButton" layoutX="18.0" layoutY="100.0" mnemonicParsing="false" onAction="#handleCloseButtonAction" onMouseClicked="#onMouseClickedCancelBtn" prefHeight="26.0" prefWidth="77.0" text="Abbrechen" />
   <Label layoutX="10.0" layoutY="27.0" prefHeight="27.0" prefWidth="342.0" text="Sie können das Systema nun verwenden" textAlignment="CENTER" textOverrun="CLIP">
     <font>
        <Font name="System Bold" size="18.0" />
     </font>
  </Label>
   </children>
  </AnchorPane>
