    Default General Question how to create Project Management App

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new here..

    i want to create an Application, with JavaFX which should be use for something like Project Management.

    That means, that i have an "Kanban" style board and can move "Tasks" between the "Fields". With Drag n Drop.

    The question is, with what should i create it?

    Until now i just used in JavaFX the usual elements.. like listviews tables buttons and so on.

    But i think this is something i should make with Graphics right?

    any experience?

    In JavaFX, use a Canvas to do your own 2D drawing. Unfortunately, Oracle in all their awe-inspiring wisdom decided it's not necessary to have a single JFX component that can both draw and respond to mouse events out-of-the-box. So I use a subclass of Pane with its own Canvas to get both. The layoutChildren() function just positions its Canvas at 0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight(). Listen for mouse events on the Pane, and do custom drawing on the Canvas. Then it's almost like JPanel but in JavaFX.
