Hello all,
            So here is the problem and any suggestions are welcome.

I am building a click-less interface, driven by an automatic speech
When I run my main function, I load the appropriate glade file, get the
input from the speech recogniser, load the appropriate widget.
To show the window, I use Gtk::Main::run().  But the problem is the
recogniser is kept on hold as this function waits for a return when the
window is stopped.

Try reading this thoroughly:

Remember that the only thing that usually follows "gtk_main()"
is "return" or "exit()" - this is event based programming, you are
not to control your program flow at all :)


Hey Tristan and all,
                               I found a work-around this problem and it is
working pretty well :)
As we can have only one method (typically main) calling and painting the
gui, I left the Gtk::Main::run()
in the main. However, I dynamically change the Glib::RefPtr based on the
spoken command which runs in a different
thread ahead of the run. As you speak, the interface gets updated

I have tested it for quite some time now, and it is yet to break.
Hope this helps for any of you now or in the future.



PS: Thanks Tristan, it was your suggested url that helped me find a way out
in the end.
