Re: using cluttermm

Hi Krzesimir and Murray,
Thanks, that makes sense.  The Animation timeline still doesn't work, but that's another problem and I'm happy enough chewing away at it.  I can achieve the effect with a BehaviourPath, so I've got something working to leverage off.

I'm possibly being a sucker for punishment, but is there any other documentation on wrapping C functions apart from the back of the programming with gtkmm book?  I think I need to understand the process a little better.

Glib::Value is not nice to use as one might wish. Maybe try
initializing it before:

Glib::Value<float> xdim;
xdim.init (xdim.value_type ());
xdim.set (150.0);
effect->bind("x", xdim);
