use setSize(100,100);

setPreferredSize(100,100) also will work.

setPreferredSize(100,100) will return below error:

BoxAlignmentDemo.java:80: setPreferredSize(java.awt.Dimension) in javax.swing.JComponent cannot be applied to (int,int)
controlMessage.setPreferredSize(100,100);

The actual size of your panel will depend on the LayoutManager you use.
Some managers will use the preferred size, some others will use the minimum size.
