Re: radio button size

I'm creating a set of radio buttons using gtk_radio_button_new, etc.,

gtk_widget_set_size_request, but that seems to control the area in which
the button displays, with the button itself being truncated without
changing size.

    Usualy in a GTK+ interface you are working with a relative
size/coordinate system (because you want your application to be
resizable, run on many different desktops and still look relatively
the same everywhere), the size allocated to a button is decided
by the parenting widget using child properties ("packing properties").

setting the "width-request"/"height-request" widget properties
(i.e. using gtk_widget_set_size_request() ) will ensure that the
widget in question will never be smaller than "w/h".

packing properties vary across containers, see for example the
"expand", "fill" and "padding" child properties of the GtkBox
