I want to fix the length of the JLabel text in my application.

For example: JLabel test=new JLabel("Selected File Testing");

If i use the above string,then my design gets collapsed.

how to fix the length of the JLabel Text?

Please help me to resolve this issue...

here is my code...


getContentPane().setLayout(new GridBagLayout());
getContentPane().setBounds(500, 300, 500, 300);
getContentPane().setBackground(Color.decode("#C1CDAD"));
GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.FIRST_LINE_START;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 0);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.weightx=1.0f;
c.weighty=1.0f;
// c.gridx = 0;
c.gridy = 1;
getContentPane().add(fileSelectLabel, c);

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.LINE_START;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 0);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.gridx = 0;
c.gridy = 1;
getContentPane().add(statusLabel, c);

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.PAGE_START;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 10);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.gridx = 1;
c.gridy = 0;
getContentPane().add(pathField, c);
pathField.setEditable(false);
pathField.setBackground(Color.white);
pathField.setBorder(BorderFactory.createLineBorder(Color.decode("#98AFC7")));

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.FIRST_LINE_END;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 10);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.gridx = 2;

c.gridx = 2;
c.gridy = 2;
getContentPane().add(cancelButton, c);

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.CENTER;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(20, 10, 20, 10);
c.gridwidth = 3;

c.gridx = 1;
c.gridy = 1;
getContentPane().add(statusArea, c);
statusArea.setEditable(false);
statusArea.setBorder(BorderFactory.createLineBorder(Color.decode("#98AFC7")));

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.NORTH;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.CENTER;
c.insets = new Insets(0, 5, 0, 5);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.gridheight = 1;
c.gridx = 1;
c.gridy = 4;
getContentPane().add(bytesLabel, c);
bytesLabel.setVisible(false);

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.WEST;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.LAST_LINE_START;
c.insets = new Insets(0, 5, 0, 5);
c.gridwidth = 3;
