- create a class called ColorPicker that extends JDialog

- decide how many colors you want, this will determine how many panels to use to display you colors

- set the layount to gridlayout, the size of the grid should be the amount of colors you want

- if you know the colors you want, use an array of colors ie

   Color colors[] = {Color.red,Color.blue,Color.green............etc

   or you could use any number of the Color constructors to create any color you want



that should be enough to get you started
