I'm trying to get e(fx)clipse to work but it seems like connecting this plugin with the sdk is harden then it should be.

When i don't dont use the plugin it is way easier. my java SDK is located at "C:\libs\JavaFX\javafx-sdk-11.0.2" so i create a user library to that points to this location "C:\libs\JavaFX\javafx-sdk-11.0.2\lib" und add the lib to my project and i'm good to go. I also have to attach the doc/source manually which is a bit annoying but ok.

But all this does not give me a syntax help for *.css and *.fxml files, so i want to use e(fx)clipse.

See image 1

This is would i expect should work. unfortunately it does not work and other locations work as much. e(fx)clipse does not give me any indication whether or not the path to my javafx sdk is right or wrong :( but any location seems to be wrong because not only is css/fxml syntax help missing, but also the javafx classes can not be found.

well maybe when the path to my javafx sdk is wrong, what if i edit this directly in the project build path? so i go to project build path, libraries, JavaFX SDK and press edit. what i get is an empty window

See Image 2

Am i doing something wrong? Because i would have thought the only thing i have to do is tell the plugin where the sdk is.

This is for PDE but should solve your usecase as well https://github.com/eclipse-efx/efxclipse-eclipse/wiki/Eclipse4-application-on-OpenJFX-11 but my suggestion on Java11 onwards is to use maven or gradle
