Post Need button to stay at the bottom of my dialog

I tried to extend the "initial example" from the MigLayout whitepaper in order to add an "OK" button that would always stay on the bottom of the dialog:


Unfortunately, the only solution I found was to add a "fake label" that would grow:

public class TestResize extends JDialog {
    protected JPanel contentPane;

    public TestResize() {
        super((Dialog) null, "Test resize", true);

    private void setupUI() {
        contentPane = new JPanel(new MigLayout());
        contentPane.add(new JLabel("Enter size:"), "");
        contentPane.add(new JTextField(""), "grow, pushx, wrap");
        contentPane.add(new JLabel("Enter weight:"), "");
        contentPane.add(new JTextField(""), "grow, pushx, wrap");
        // fake panel that is allowed to grow
        contentPane.add(new JPanel(), "span 2, grow, pushy, wrap");
        JButton okButton = new JButton("Ok");
        JPanel buttonPanel = new JPanel(new MigLayout("", "[center, grow]"));
        buttonPanel.add(okButton, "");
        contentPane.add(buttonPanel, "dock south");

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        TestResize dialog = new TestResize();

I really don't like this approach at all... but is there a better way ?

Thanks !
