objectsCommented:
you never add the panel but u don't really need it.

        jPanel.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {
            public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e) {
                setBackground(Color.blue);
                }
                public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
                    setBackground(Color.red);
                    }
                    public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e) {
                        setBackground(Color.white);
                        }

Is there a way of having the text color change after the checkbox is checked?

JavatmCommented:
Yes you can if its a check box then its like :

  JCheckBox check = new JCheckBox();

  check.addItemListener(new ItemListener() {

  public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e)
  {
  // To change the color of the checkbox . . .
  check.setBackground(Color.blue);
  }
  });

Hope that helps . . .

OR :

  JCheckBox check = new JCheckBox();

  check.addItemListener(new ItemListener() {

  public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e)
  {
  if (e.getStateChange() == ItemEvent.SELECTED) {
  // To change the color of the checkbox . . .
  check.setBackground(Color.blue);  
  }
  else if(e.getStateChange() == ItemEvent.DESELECTED) {
  }
  // To change the color of the checkbox . . .
  check.setBackground(Color.red);
  }
  });

Hope that helps . . .
