Hello List,

How do you do pango markup for text in a GtkComboBox?
  - You create your combo box

  - Create a GtkListStore with a G_TYPE_STRING column where you store
     the markup for each row

  - Give the list store to the combo

  - Add a GtkCellRendererText to the combo

  - Assign the "markup" attribute of the cell renderer to the column
    in the store that holds the markup.

Tada !

Thanks. I'll give it a try.

Seems like massive overkill though. Couldnt this be done using a combobox
made from gtk_combo_box_new_text()?

I only need to store two items.
No it cannot, the _text() apis are the convenience that takes
care of the simple tasks such as:
   a.) creating a liststore to store the text
   b.) creating a cellrenderertext to display the text in the liststore

It's just a small wrapping api that does the work for the simple
case of a combo box that only shows simple text entries.

Well I managed to do it like this...

combo = gtk_combo_box_new_text();
cell_list = gtk_cell_layout_get_cells(GTK_CELL_LAYOUT(combo));
  if(cell_list && cell_list->data){

I'm guessing this could break without notice but at the moment its a million times better than bringing in the clunky GtkTreeModel API for just two items.
