From the docs of GridPane:

For debug purposes only: controls whether lines are displayed to show the gridpane's rows and columns.

– if you want to create something like a table with lines between borders, use a HBox to contain the columns and a VBox for each column, and style the columns using -fx-background-insets and -fx-background-color.
