Missing Components Error for JavaFX in Eclipse jdk-13.0.1(Windows 10)

Hello. I am learning to program in Java in my first-year University degree and would need some help from experienced people.
I am trying to run the JavaFX project on my Windows 10 machine using the recent jdk version 13.0.1. The Eclipse IDE that I am using is Eclipse Java 2019-09.

The error that I get seems to be a runtime error and it is:
Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application.

I am trying to run the following simple code which is in Main.java :



All I expect is that this code opens a blank window, but this error is persisting.
The JavaFX page indicated that there needs to be an environment variable PATH_TO_FX declared. I defined the environment variable PATH_TO_FX but it didn't work. It may be that I did not declare/define it at the correct place within Eclipse. The current locations in Eclipse are:
1) Window --> Preferences --> Build Path --> Classpath Variables
2) Project --> Properties --> Java Build Path --> Libraries --> ClassPath --> Add Variable

Any of the above has not worked so far and I would appreciate some advice on running this so that I can complete my assignment.

Regards
Yareem

Did you download a JavaFX implementation? It's no longer a standard part of the JDK.

I used this link and downloaded the very first one under Latest Release (JavaFX Windows SDK Version 13.0.1). Is it the same one you are talking about?

You will need to add two vm arguments to your run configuration.

Run -> Run Configurations..

Then in the Arguments tab, in the VM Arguments box, type something like this:

--module-path "C:\path\to\javafx-sdk-13.0.1\lib\" --add-modules=javafx.controls

You will need to change your module path to the actual path to your JavaFX SDK library.
 
This looks like a job for .... legal tender! It says so right in this tiny ad:
