I tried that originally. Does not work.

on mouseUp
  setcolor the selectedColor2 of me
end mouseUp

# calls

setColor which

"which" is empty

"of me" 

# calls

colorPalette "Color Map"

It would seem you need to change the selectedColor to selectedColor2 in the control "Color Map" but

"colorPalette"  which also is  only for internal use.

I can see it "Color Map" on screen, select it. But you can't get the inspector on it, opens up "No Object Selected" or set a custom property on it.... 

He is exposing "deep engine" code and objects we can’t easily leverage in today's IDE

    This is a custom property name only. So
    do cmd-F in the PaintTools stack
    search for selectedColor
    in "this stack and its stack files"
    replace with selectedColor2
    Save and you are done.
