a GtkHScale "is a" GtkRange.  maybe you need to learn more about object
orientation?  check out the object hierarchy:


GtkHScale is subclassed from GtkScale, which is subclassed from
GtkRange, which is subclassed from...  blah blah blah.  That means you
can treat a valid GtkHScale* as a valid GtkRange*.

GtkWidget* p = gtk_hscale_new_with_range (0, 100, 1);
gtk_widget_show( p );
printf("%f\n", gtk_range_get_value(GTK_RANGE(p)) );

as for getting the pointer to GtkHScale, look for information about
lookup_widget().  you should see it used in Glade tutorials.
