Problem with ProgressMonitor

Can anyone guide me how to increase the size of the ProgressMonitor.

I have the code like this :

public JFrame getMyParentFrame()
return new JFrame();

ProgressMonitor progressMonitor = new ProgressMonitor(context.getMyParentFrame(),
"PM Search in progress...",
"Calculating file numbers...",
0, 100);


String note = "Searching file " + currentFileNumber +
"/" + totalNumberOfFiles + "... Found " +
searchResults.size() + " records...";


In the above code "currentFileNumber " ,"totalNumberOfFiles " and searchResults.size() are some dynamic values.

In my progress monitor window, the note was displayed only till ...Fou as set in the note.

The searchResults.size() + " records..." is not shown in the progress monitor window. but if user enlarges the corners of the window he is able to see the full message.

Is it possible to increase the size? please help
