as RT-14000 (https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-14000) - text
formatter for TextInputControl has been pushed recently, it's time to
discuss what implementations of Text Formatter should be included in
I added some ideas to (https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-37785),
where all the comments should go.
Here's some short summary:
* StringFormatter for converting between String and arbitrary object
using toString and valueOf (or String constructor), which would do
similar job as DefaultFormatter in swing.
* MaskFormatter (similar to the class of the same name in swing) - it
would support String mask, defining own placeholder character, escape
character or even defining own map (as a Map<Character,
UnaryOperator<Character>>), where the unary operator for the map either
returns null (if not accepted) or the same/modified character if accepted.
* A TextFormatter that takes java.text.Format and does the filtering and
converting using the Format object.
