I have custom widget (derived from GtkDrawingArea). What's the
recommended way to work with just a custom widget in glade?

Should I just not put a widget and in the code add the widget to a
GtkBin that I put in the glade file?

Hi, sorry there is no real documentation about this at the moment.

please, the simplest way is to follow instructions in my blog post[1],
that will get you the widget in the glade runtime (remember to set
the parent attribute to GtkDrawingArea)... then in your libglade
application you need to call:

   glade_provides ("name"); /* the name of the catalog in glade */
   glade_register_widget (FOO_TYPE_BAR, glade_standard_build_widget,
                          NULL, NULL); /* FOO_TYPE_BAR is your real type */

Thanks, I've used the approach that I was suggesting as well. And that
works fine and is easier in my opinion. What I did is the following

My custom widget had to be placed into a GtkScrolledWindow. In glade I
simply did not put any widget. In the c code I created my custom
widget and simply called a gtk_container_add with the scrolled window
and my custom widget as parameters.

Any comments?
