[Glade-devel] porting code from glade 1.2 version to 2.0 version

Dear Tristan,
I have defined a custom widget which is calling another glade xml
lsdstw.glade as defined below.

<widget class="Custom" id="well_select">
<property name="visible">True</property>
<property name="creation_function">glade_subtree</property>
<property name="string1">lsdstw.glade</property>
<property name="string2">dialog-elements</property>
<property name="int1">0</property>
<property name="int2">0</property>
<property name="last_modification_time">Tue, 05 Mar 2002 18:06:16 GMT</property>

Now how can I register the widgets of lsdstw.glade so that we see the
complete UI which consists of the main glade xml and the widgets of
What is the significance of the property "creation_function".
Individually both the xml are openning perfectlly.

Thanks in Advance
