Well, i don't really know whether all this is really
relevant to this list but... flames to /dev/null
I am completly new to desktop programming and gtk is
my first widget: i decided a month ago to learn
gnome/gtk programming to help in the gnome project.
however, the api is much too big: so, i began my own
app to learn all this cleanly (GXFig : a gnome/gtk
clone of xfig, much simpler than gyve).
So, please, tell me if i am right:
an app needs to do:
1) file saving/loading
2) config file loading/saving
3) object linking (we'll come back to this later)
well, i think gnome can do all this but how ?
what library calls can i use to save some struct state ?
back to object linking: it is rather obscure to me...
i never really understood windoze ole so... if i am right,
an app simply calls one through some corba object exportation
: ole is nothing more than that. Is inter_application
copy/paste same ?
However, here is my pb: let's imagine that i code some app
which uses .fig files and displays some vector drawings.
now, how can i set it up so that any other gnome app can
use it in an ole system ? won't all other app need custom code
to integrate this new app ?
Last but not least: i noticed there is no library call to
allow someone to add/remove items in toolbars using gnome
while it can be done for menus. Should i really use
gtk_toolbar_insert_item function ??
Thanks for any answer.
