How would I do this with GridLayout,

Shrugs: provide some code and perhaps we'll see.

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?

I've used such a program.

     Did you enjoy it? ;-)

     That is: Did you consider it a benefit, a point in the
program's favor, when the program's window resisted all your
efforts to make it larger? Did this behavior improve your
experience of using the program?
