Some things are not possible using actions. For this type of control you can ask scripters whether through script it is doable. I will tag some of them @c.pfaffenbichler @Stephen_A_Marsh

Bojan, if you have admin powers, you can also tag the thread with "Actions and Scripting" I know scripters use that filter a lot.

@lee262392485jr6 – Screenshots illustrating the process and the steps performed before and after the swatch selection would be helpful.

 

After selection, the current selected swatch colour is the foreground colour.

 

As the swatches panel underwent a programming change, what version of Photoshop are you using?

What are you trying to do with the color? 

Could you post screenshots to illustrate the process you are trying to automate?
