Progress Monitor

I'm new to java and not real sure on how to hook up a progress monitor to an event. I'm trying to update the progress monitor as the a function runs but all I get is a blank progress monitor and never updates. I don't quite understand actionlistners etc.. so I'm sure that is what I'm missing but here is what I'm trying to do.

public void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

private void runupdate() {
ProgressMonitor prog = new ProgressMonitor(SwingLabel.this,
"Uploading Images, Please Wait...",
"", 0, 100);
prog.setNote("Uploading Images, Please Wait");
prog.setNote("Uploading Image 1");
