Class DoubleProperty

All Implemented Interfaces:
NumberExpression, Observable, Property<Number>, ReadOnlyProperty<Number>, ObservableDoubleValue, ObservableNumberValue, ObservableValue<Number>, WritableDoubleValue, WritableNumberValue, WritableValue<Number>
Direct Known Subclasses:

public abstract class DoubleProperty extends ReadOnlyDoubleProperty implements Property<Number>, WritableDoubleValue
This class defines a Property wrapping a double value.

The value of a DoubleProperty can be get and set with ObservableDoubleValue.get(), DoubleExpression.getValue(), WritableDoubleValue.set(double), and setValue(Number).

A property can be bound and unbound unidirectional with Property.bind(ObservableValue) and Property.unbind(). Bidirectional bindings can be created and removed with bindBidirectional(Property) and unbindBidirectional(Property).

The context of a DoubleProperty can be read with ReadOnlyProperty.getBean() and ReadOnlyProperty.getName().

Note: setting or binding this property to a null value will set the property to "0.0". See setValue(java.lang.Number).

    • bindBidirectional

      public void bindBidirectional(Property<Number> other)
      Create a bidirectional binding between this Property and another one. Bidirectional bindings exists independently of unidirectional bindings. So it is possible to add unidirectional binding to a property with bidirectional binding and vice-versa. However, this practice is discouraged.

      It is possible to have multiple bidirectional bindings of one Property.

      JavaFX bidirectional binding implementation use weak listeners. This means bidirectional binding does not prevent properties from being garbage collected.

      Specified by:
      bindBidirectional in interface Property<Number>
      other - the other Property
    • unbindBidirectional

      public void unbindBidirectional(Property<Number> other)
      Remove a bidirectional binding between this Property and another one. If no bidirectional binding between the properties exists, calling this method has no effect. It is possible to unbind by a call on the second property. This code will work:
      Specified by:
      unbindBidirectional in interface Property<Number>
      other - the other Property
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Returns a string representation of this DoubleProperty object.
      toString in class ReadOnlyDoubleProperty
      a string representation of this DoubleProperty object.
