The Metro Text Box control is the usual input text field from which developers can get text input from users. This control has a particular trait usually present in control library designed to be used through touch: whenever the user enters text a clear button appears on the right most position of the control.
This particular feature isn’t available in the text input control from the JavaFX library, so the use of CSS won’t be enough to achieve a “metro” style.
For this reason I’ve created a new control: ErasableTextField (Yes, I know, not the best choice of a name for a control 🙂 ), which extends from TextField and adds this missing feature: a button which appears inside the text input control to clear it whenever there is text inside. Then through the usual use of CSS I style the control to make it look like the Windows 8 Text Box.
