    Default How to set the size of a JComboBox?

    I have a JComboBox and I can't figure out how why, but it takes up the whole window, even if I resize the window itself.

    Java Code:
    String[] firstOptions = {"--Pick one--", "One", "Second", "Next", "Testing"};
    	       JComboBox firstValue = new JComboBox(firstOptions); 
    	       firstValue.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(300, 100)); 
    	       firstValue.setSelectedIndex(0);
    	       frame.getContentPane().add(firstValue, BorderLayout.NORTH);
    Even though Dimension(300, 100) is smaller than my JFrame window, the JComboBox still takes up the whole window.

    Any help? I'm a little new to Java
