In the "changed" signal handler for the GtkOptionMenu you get a pointer
to the GtkOptionMenu itself. Using it, you can call
gtk_option_menu_get_history to get the index of the currently selected
item. You can store the strings of the menu items in an array and pick
the correct one using that index. 

You could consider using GtkComboBox --- GtkOptionMenu is a deprecated

Hope this helps,
