Remove this line:

This causes the scroll pane's viewport to not be shown unless you specify the bounds.

Please note that it's an overall bad idea to use null as layout managers; your code just shows one of the reasons.

Also, if I were you I'd call setResizable(false) on your dialog if you're keeping this setup, because the controls stay in their old place if you resize the dialog.
