    Default I cannot get eclipse to work with JavaFX

    So I have followed this video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC4XB6JAaoU and when I get done putting in the arguments in the box for run configurations I keep getting an error message like Module javafx.controls;fxml not found.

    I have tried separating the word controls and fxml with a comma, a semi-colon, and a colon and I keep getting the error message. I have followed everything.

    Don't know where I'm going wrong.

    This is what I have typed in the arguments box:

    --module-path "D:\Internet Downloads\javafx-sdk-15.0.1\lib" --add-modules javafx.controls;javafx.fxml

    The error also says error occurred during initialization of boot layer.

    error message like Module javafx.controls;fxml not found.
    the separator character is a comma.
    There is no module: fxml. The module name is javafx.fxml

    Here is a commandline that works for me:
    D:\Java\jdk-14\bin\java.exe -cp . --module-path "D:\Java\javafx-sdk-12.0.2\lib"  --add-modules=javafx.controls --add-modules=javafx.fxml HBoxMain
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
