[Glade-users] Best Practice for Glade.XML - open/close new window

I have around 7 similar windows which are defined in a

The reason I'm asking about this is that the app seems
slightly slow and has shown some funny behavior
between opening new windows.  Can anyone spot any
mistakes with this?

Each time I show a new window:
  gxml = new Glade.XML(sPATH_TO_GLADE_XML,
sWindowName, null);
  gxml.Autoconnect (this);
  wndCurrent =
  // ... set properties of wndCurrent ...

And when I'm done with the window:

Thanks for any advice. 

I think calling only wndCurrent.Destroy() should be enough (it should be disposed
and hidden as a side effect).. that is besides the point...

It will be faster if you create your windows once at initialization
and just show/hide them, alternatively; you are probably better off
with a GnomeDruid type of design; if GnomeDruid is not available to you;
you can simply use a GtkNotebook and hide the tabs, use forward/backward
buttons to navigate pages in your notebook.


Note that libglade does a two-pass parse; it parses the glade file into
internal structures and then builds the widgets based on these, the future
gtk builder should be faster in this respect.
