JavaFX Scene Builder User Guide
4 Using the Selection and Message Bar
This chapter describes the Selection and Message bar that is located just above the Content panel of the Scene Builder main window.
It displays the containment path of the selected UI element. It enables you to easily go to and place focus on a specific element by clicking that element's name in the containment path. When you hover the cursor over an element's name, it is underlined, as shown in Figure 4-1.

The same area that is used to display the containment path is also used to display feedback and error messages, as shown in Figure 4-3. After a message is displayed for a couple of seconds, the warning icon remains on the right end of the Message bar. Click the warning icon, circled in Figure 4-3, to view the list of messages. The number next to the icon indicates the number of messages that are displayed. You can clear one or all of the messages in the list view.
