      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0_06"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      Running on a Dell Latitude D620. Standalone or Network doesn't make a difference

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Implementing JToggleButton. When toggle button is pressed, the background color setting is ignored. Currently, it only appears to be respected when the button is in the up (non-selected) position. I have attempted to override EVERY option in the UIManager UIDefaults which pertains to "ToggleButton" color properties to override this behavior without success. I have noticed that this has supposedly been a problem since after JDK1.2 and that bugs of a similar nature have been closed and indicated as fixed.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Simply extending JToggleButton and placing within a JFrame. Set the background color to a desired color. Press toggle button. Color is ignored when selected. Depress toggle button (deselected), color setting is respected.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      In this case, the background should always be yellow whether the button is pressed or not. Not my main goal, but I did this approach simply to show that the color is ignored when the button is selected.
      ACTUAL -
      unknown default background color shown when button selected.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
