    JTabbedPane - different colors per selected tab.

    grok_code

      I'm trying to create a JTabbedPane with tabs that will have different colors when selected. For example, let's say I have tabs A, B, and C. If a tab is not selected, then the tab color will be the default. If tab A is selected, then the tab color will change to red. If tab B is selected, then the tab color will change to green. If tab C is selected, then the tab color will change to yellow. How can I achieve this behavior? The closest method I could find was calling UIManager.put("TabbedPane.selected", Color.RED) but this sets the color of all selected tabs to red.
