keyboard shortcut for choosing background color?

Hi, When the brush tool is the active tool, holding down the option key allows one to choose a new foreground color from the image. Does there exist a similar keyboard shortcut for sampling a new background color from the image when the brush tool is active?

Is there a quicker way to select a new background color from the image than having to use the x key to switch foreground and background color positions, option clicking with brush tool, then hitting x again to reverse foreground and background color positions?

Thanks.

Open the Color panel, click on the Background square in the upper left corner. From then on you'll select only background colors.
