Re: GTK Menu Window Type

Hi Tadej,

Thanks, I think that was the issue!Â

I was trying to chunk in such property into theÂGtk2::Dialog->new instead, that's why I got a bit lost.

I quickly glimpsed at the volwheel's code [1] and popup menu you
describe seems to be just a normal, undecorated toplevel window and is
not a menu per-see.

I think this can be solved by simply changing the window type hint to
something from the list above. It should be simple thing to do, since
all you need to change is line 29 in linked file.
