Hi, I don't know how to set component color in UI Designer. Is this feature
available? Thank you for your answer.

Currently designer doesn't support color tweaking. This feature is
planed for Aurora, but we consider changing of colors as a bad UI
design. All colors should be configured in LookAndFeel, otherwise you
are risky to get inconsistent UI application.

And this is a good decision IMHO.

Hi Vladimir,

I guess, that "changing color of component" mean coloring configuration, for
example.
If i try to construct colorpicker placeholder. I put JPanel (Or JLabel) and
set Backgound color for it. On click event invoked JColorChooser.
I see such "coloring" and in IDEA - Choosing color then you customize syntax
highlight.

So, in similar situation setting of colors will better directly, but not
from L&F.

Thank you!
