Max Size Text in JTextField

I hava a jtextfield on a component with a Gridbag layout. I want the text in the Textfield to be the maximum height possible, such that it just fits vertically into the field. I know I can change the font but how do I decide the size or is the a better way of doing it.

The information displayed is purely numerical I don't suppose there's and 8 segment display component that I'm missing is there?

Thanks

Struan
