There was never my intention for something like that.
It is/was just to give an introduction of those widgets and an “in use” explaination for what those functions ( belonging to widgets ) are for.
The reference manual is hard to be understand if one does concentrate itself on just one particular widget.
Now if you take a random Widget you will notice fast, that more other widgets/objects/interfaces are involved and the things are getting complicated at the beginning.
Now the history learned us that the copy/paste system does not bring us to far and one will never have positive future success doing it.
I am almost 100% sure that I provided more than a newly GTK programmer needs to start with.
Of course that those information’s which I provide there are information’s based on my own understanding and mistakes could take place anytime.
The GTK system is quite simple, you put “something” inside “something” and manipulate them for your needs, but if you do not understand that “something”, then probably happens because you did not followed the references at all ( like I said copy/paste) and you can not see/understand the whole picture.
There are a lot of projects out there from where one could learn a lot, but the Question remains the same:
- are you sure that you know what your goal is?
- do you understand what are you trying/doing there?
- do you understand your own Questions?
- do you understand the Answers you get?
Feel free to ask as many Question you want to about your projects and what exactly are your misunderstandings and I am 100 % positive that someone will bring you to the right track.
