JavaFX Month days calculator

JavaFx User Interface Components: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a JavaFX application that uses a ComboBox to choose a month (e.g., January, February). When a month is selected, display the number of days in that month.

Sample Solution:

JavaFx Code:


import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.collections.FXCollections;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.control.ComboBox;
import javafx.scene.control.Label;
import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

public class Main extends Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        primaryStage.setTitle("Month Days App");

        // Create a label to display the number of days.
        Label daysLabel = new Label("Number of Days: ");

        // Create a ComboBox with a list of months.
        ComboBox monthComboBox = new ComboBox<>(FXCollections.observableArrayList(
                "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June",
                "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"

        // Create a map to store the number of days for each month.
        Map monthDaysMap = new HashMap<>();
        monthDaysMap.put("January", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("February", 28);
        monthDaysMap.put("March", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("April", 30);
        monthDaysMap.put("May", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("June", 30);
        monthDaysMap.put("July", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("August", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("September", 30);
        monthDaysMap.put("October", 31);
        monthDaysMap.put("November", 30);
        monthDaysMap.put("December", 31);

        // Handle the action when a month is selected from the ComboBox.
        monthComboBox.setOnAction(event -> {
            String selectedMonth = monthComboBox.getValue();
            int days = monthDaysMap.get(selectedMonth);
            daysLabel.setText("Number of Days in " + selectedMonth + ": " + days);

        // Create a layout (VBox) to arrange the ComboBox and label.
        VBox root = new VBox(10);
        root.getChildren().addAll(monthComboBox, daysLabel);

        // Create the scene and set it in the stage.
        Scene scene = new Scene(root, 300, 200);

        // Set the title of the window.

In the above JavaFX application, we use a ComboBox to select a month. A map is used to store the number of days in each month. When a month is selected from the ComboBox, it retrieves the number of days from the map and displays it in a label. The elements are organized using a 'VBox'.
