How would I do this with GridLayout, since I'm using GridLayout. Here are the details.

In a frame, I first add a push button at the top. Below the button I add two tables, side by side.

The frame already resizes vertically to any length which is good.

But, I want the frame to not resize horizontally beyond a certain hardcoded limit. I.E.: I want the frame to resize horizontally, but attempts to resize beyond a certain limit are prevented. So, if a user were to try to resize horizontally beyond the limit then the resulting horizontal width of the frame would be the limit.


     Perhaps it's time to ask a question: Why do you think it's a
good idea to prevent the user from arranging his own screen as
he pleases? Does your program understand the user's needs and
desires better than he himself does?
