Re: gtk_object_get_data

You don't use the gtk_object_get_data function for this.  That function is
for getting arbitrary data associated with an object by
gtk_object_set_data.  You probably want to be using gtk_object_getv.  The
code should look something like this:

  GtkArg arg;

  arg.type = GTK_TYPE_DOUBLE; = "text_width";
  gtk_object_getv(GTK_OBJECT(item), 1, &arg);
  text_width = GTK_VALUE_DOUBLE(arg);

This should give you the width (in pixels) of the rendered text.
