Create your own HTML Editor in JavaFX2.1

In JavaFX 2.1, the class javafx.scene.web.HTMLEditor is a control that allows for users to edit text, and apply styling to this text. The underlying data model is HTML, although this is not shown visually to the end-user.

Example:
HTMLEditor in JavaFX2.1


package javafx_html;

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.GroupBuilder;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.web.HTMLEditor;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

/**
 *
 * @web http://java-buddy.blogspot.com/
 */
public class JavaFX_HTMLeditor extends Application {

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }
    
    @Override
    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        primaryStage.setTitle("java-buddy.blogspot.com");
        Group root = new Group();
        
        final HTMLEditor htmlEditor = new HTMLEditor();

        Group myGroup = GroupBuilder.create()
                .children(htmlEditor)
                .build();
        
        root.getChildren().add(myGroup);
  
        primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(root, 500, 400));
        primaryStage.show();
    }
}

  1. Could you please extend this example showing how to save the resulting HTML to a file?
