Hi there,

I have a panel that includes a label. I've added a mouse listener on the label. This is how it is working now: when I click on the label, I reset the background color of the panel:


and then set it to another color:

panel.setBackground(new Color(30,100,10,40));

The problem is with the alpha component I am using with the color; now whenever I click on the label, the color of the panel is becoming darker and darker (the transparency of the color is reducing). Notice that the code panel.setBackground(Color.PINK) is working and i am sure of it.
I hope I made my point clear.

Waiting for any help.
