JDialog sizing

Hello. I have a JDialog that contains a JSplitPane. Initially when the Dialog comes up, just the left hand component has been added to the JSplitPane. When the user presses a button on the left hand component of the JSplitPane, I add the right hand component to the JSplitPane.
My problem, is when the right component is added, you can't see it unless you resize the JDialog.
I want the JDialog to automatically resize when the right hand component is added to the JSplitPane.
How can I accomplish this?

Try pack() on the JDialog as soon as the right component gets added.
