[Glade-users] how to replicate a glade designed window?

Suppose I have used glade to design a window for displaying a view, but I want my application to be able to

widget tree.

Can someone take pity on me and explain how this is done?  This has to be a really elementary question, but 
I can't find the answer.

Just do something like this:

for (i = 0...items) {
   xml = glade_xml_new (...);

   if ((widgets[i] = glade_xml_get_widget (...)) == NULL)
       error ();

   /* Here you need to deal with the limitation of having to use a
GtkWindow toplevel,
    * so assuming its a normal widget you'll have to do something like this:
   toplevel = glade_xml_get_widget (...);
   g_object_ref (widgets[i]);
   gtk_container_remove (widget from the toplevel);
   gtk_widget_destroy (the toplevel);

   /* and always dont forget to not leek the GladeXML */
   g_object_unref (xml);

Note that in the GtkBuilder api you can do exactly the same.
