JComboBox - a constant size

Started working on my assignment again after a looooooong time.
I have a pretty basic question now.
I am using a JCombobox in my
layout to implement the Search functionality. It expands to fit in the largest entry in the list.
Is there a way I could make it a constant size, so that irrespective of the data entries, it just shows a constant width?

There's a setting on thge combobox for the max visible entries, have a squizz at the javadoc for what it is but it makes the combo box scroll so you can see the other entries.
I agree. Here's the link:
