JVx' vaadinUI supports FontAwesome and VaadinIcons

Post to Twitter

Vaadin has support for FontIcons since release 7.2. The first supported FontIcon was FontAwesome. Vaadin has a nice description in their book.

It's straight forward:

button.setIcon(FontAwesome.SAVE);

Since June 2015 vaadin also supports their own Font Icons: Vaadin Font Icons.

In our JVx' VaadinUI, it wasn't possible to use FontIcons without accessing the real vaadin resource, e.g.

((com.vaadin.ui.Button)button.getResource()).setIcon(FontAwesome.SAVE);

With next release, we'll allow FontAwesome and VaadinIcons out-of-the-box, without accessing the ressource and without manual installation of font icons, because our UI has everything included.

It will be possible to write:

button.setImage(UIImage.getImage("FontAwesome.SAVE"));

or

button.setImage(UIImage.getImage("VaadinIcons.ARROW_CIRCLE_DOWN_O"));

This feature is not official because it's not technology independent, but it's already available in our nightly builds :)
