JColorChooser white doesn't fire event

I have been using a JColorChooser dialog which
sets the colors of a graph.
It seems to work except when choosing the color
Debugging code to console shows that when choosing
white, ChangeEvents aren't fired, unlike other colors.
Any help would be much appreciated,

That's because white is the color that is initially selected and ChangeEvents are fired only when the selection changes. If white is already selected and you select it again, the selection does not change. Make sure you initialize the default color of the JColorChooser to the color of the component you are trying to change, something like :

Then the JColorChooser and the Graph will be synched up.
