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?

cheers

I don't have direct experience with Kanban, but I developed and maintained ERP software with light manufacturing. I also have some non-professional experience with JavaFX.

My very-high-level understanding of Kanban is that it uses cards to signal need for parts and where those parts are in the manufacturing process.  It would be nice to have different color cards in the app that you could move from one area to another. Or you could simply move the part ID (or description) from on area to another.  It really depends on what you are trying to achieve.

If you're just asking how to move a card-like graphic from one area to another, we can talk about that.  But if you're planning to write an entire Kanban manufacturing application, you might want to start with specifications first.  That is, do you know that a particular technology is needed for this app?

Hi Knute Snortum,

thanks for your answer

yeah its just about to have "Cards" with some information and also a image in. Would like to move them from one "Column" to another.

I already have some examples with some Objects in Drag n Drop... but I'm searching for the right one. And I'm not sure what i should use.. As i don't have Experience with "Graphical" stuff.

cheers

And the one Knute linked to is not the right one because ... ?

As i don't have Experience with "Graphical" stuff.


Do you mean coding GUIs? Then maybe start with the simple stuff. And this tutorial: https://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/get_started/jfxpub-get_started.htm

I didn't say its not the right one, I just saw there was a Drag n Drop with Text.

Yeah i think i need to go first deeper into GUIs.. thanks!

I was asking if someone has there already experience and can tell me if i should spend time on Graphical stuff or not and trying to do it with simple text group boxes and so on.

Cause Usually to go deeper in a Field it takes a lot of time, and if at the End it was not the right one i could save this time

cheers
