JColorChooser

This Java swing tip illustrates a method of creating a color chooser in the applications. JColorChooser is a component that is new to Swing and there is no AWT equivalent. It lets the user interactively select a Color. The default behavior is to present a dialog box containing a tabbed pane letting the user choose via swatches, HSB values, or RGB values.

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class ShowColors2 extends JFrame {

   private JButton changeColor;
   private Color color = Color.lightGray;
   private Container c;

   public ShowColors2()
   {
      super"Using JColorChooser" );

      c = getContentPane();
      c.setLayoutnew FlowLayout() );

      changeColor = new JButton"Change Color" );
      changeColor.addActionListener(
         new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformedActionEvent e )
            {
               color =
                  JColorChooser.showDialogShowColors2.this,
                     "Choose a color", color );

               if color == null )
                  color = Color.lightGray;

               c.setBackgroundcolor );
               c.repaint();
            }
         }
      );
      c.addchangeColor );

      setSize400130 );
      show();
   }

   public static void mainString args[] )
   {
      ShowColors2 app = new ShowColors2();

      app.addWindowListener(
         new WindowAdapter() {
            public void windowClosingWindowEvent e )
            {
               System.exit);
            }
         }
      );
   }
}
