I have a new date drop down selection box and I having problerms with the grid not making it wide enough so the date is actually there, but on digit is half cut off when viewing...

How do I widen the grid field to allow it wider.. I have included partial code below...

*** beginDateChooser is a JDateChooser object widget ***

GridBagConstraints gbc = new GridBagConstraints();
gbc.insets = new Insets(5, 2, 2, 2);
gbc.anchor = 17;

gbc.gridx = 0;
gbc.gridy = 0;
nPane.add(beginDateChooser, gbc);
nPane.add(new JLabel("Begin Date"), gbc);
gbc.gridx++;
nPane.add(beginDateChooser, gbc);  //point where field needs to be wider, but just not
