A Label can be placed before the other UI node or on top of the UI node. A Label cannot be focused on. This means, we cannot use the Tab key to set the focus to a Label. Even though it will not receive focus, it can transfer the focus to other controls and in this example, we will set Mnemonic to a label control so that it will transfer the focus to another control.

In JavaFx, we can apply CSS style to the nodes. For example, if we want to define a style for the buttons, the style sheet will have the selector named as ‘.button’. The same way, TextField defines a UI class in JavaFx, and the selector will be named as ‘.text-field’. Note, as text field control is a two-word class, in the selector we will have a hyphen. When defining the rules, we must prefix each rule with ‘-fx-‘. In this example, we will define style rule for a JavaFx Button.
The LinearGradient class helps in applying such a gradient to any JavaFx shapes. In JavaFx, Linear Colour Gradient is applied by an axis in which a colour changes gradually from one point to another point. We call this axis as Gradient Axis. If we draw a line perpendicular to a specific point in the linear gradient axis, all the pixels in the perpendicular axis represents same colour.
