javafx – controlsfx – CheckTreeView – click on CheckBoxTreeItem graphic node is checking the checkbox


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by psova

When I will add a graphic node (HBox with ImageView) into CheckBoxTreeItem it behaves as a checkbox.

here is an example code:

final Image myImage = new Image("my_image.png");
ImageView myImgView = createImageView(myImage);
HBox imgHbox = new HBox();
imgHbox.setPadding(new Insets(0, 0, 0, 5));
imgHbox.getChildren().add(myImgView );
CheckBoxTreeItem newDirParent = new CheckBoxTreeItem<>(myTreeItem, imgHbox);

Any idea how to change the behavior from checking the checkbox to selecting the row?

img from the app

here is the image with highlighted icons used in the CheckBoxTreeitems. when I click them they will just check/uncheck the checkbox in the same row…
