The ProB2 JavaFX Main Window

By default the main window is split into three vertical panes (see below).

The ProB2 JavaFX Main Menu Bar

The menu bar contains the various commands to access the features of ProB. It includes the menus

  • File,
  • Edit,
  • Formula,
  • Consoles,
  • Perspectives,
  • View,
  • Window and
  • Help

The File submenu allows you to create a new Project, open an existing project or a machine, open recent projects shown as list and/or clear the list of recent projects, close the ProB2 JavaFX UI, save your project or reload the currently running machine.


The Edit submenu provides two ways to edit the current machine (either in the editor provided by the ProB2 JavaFX UI or in the your operating systems standard editor) and allows to edit your general and global preferences by opening a seperate window.


Here you can add formulas for visualization and open the history chart window.


This submenu leads to two consoles, one Groovy, one B.


The Perspectives submenu allows you to change the appearance of the main view. The default view is shown at the top and two additional perspectives (Seperated History and Seperated History and Statistics) are preset. By Detach Components the view can be shown in seperate windows. Load allows you to make your own perspective by providing an FXML file containing the views but be aware that this might ruin the ability to detach components.


This submenu allows you to adjust font and button size in the ProB2 JavaFX UI.


The Help submenu provides you with help about the ProB2 JavaFX UI, information about the ProB2 UI, ProB2 kernel, ProB CLI and Java version used here and a way to report issues regarding the ProB2 JavaFX UI.
