Description maxnitribitt 2013-10-09 16:39:26 UTC
When using fx:root, typically the controller is set on FXMLLoader, and not in the FXML-Document. Still NetBeans shows an error in the FXML-Editor if there's no controller defined and we use attributes to call controller methods.

To reproduce download this NetBeans Project from Oracle's FXML Tutorial:

Open the FXML-File. "#doSomething" will be underlined red. The error message says:
"Controller is not defined on fx:root Element", which is actually expected behavior.

Actually this is not only true for fx:root. Another Example where I'm using a valid fxml with "AnchorPane" as root element. Again no controller set in FXML, but via:

FXMLLoader fxmlLoader = new FXMLLoader(getClass().getResource("FXMLDocument.fxml"));
fxmlLoader.setController(new FXMLDocumentController());
Parent root = (Parent)fxmlLoader.load();
