Thank you very much for your answer.

If I understand you solutions correctly the sollution with View A, View
B,... allows to see only one view at the same time. But my task is to see
different view at the same time in dynamics. Is it possible with tabed
view to see and update two or more tabs at the same time?

I'll try to explain my task with a bit more details. There is a physical
process (quantum mechanics: wave function propagation in time). At every
moment of time it is possible to represent wave function as a two
dimensional array (This is my data). I can calculate different information
from this data: densities of probability of different values, equal level
lines, different average values... Something about ten or more different
views. So It's impossible to look at them all at the same time. Well
actually may be possible, but it's hard to understand :) So I would like
to have possibility to chose views I'd like to see on my screen at the
same time. (Well. this is dynamical process. So I would like to update
only views chosed to look at.)

For every view I would like to create a widget based on gtkdrawing area.
But the question is how to gather them together. I thought MDI concept is
a good choce for this. Could tabed view pannel be a good substitution?

Thank you for your attention,
