Re: Reparent command problem

To Kjell

Thank you, I realised that after posting.  It is now fixed.
As a newcomer to this group, I 'm  not sure how to close
down this problem.

Don't reparent anything. You shall not replace the message area with your own box, you shall add your grid to the existing box.

    Gtk::Label *label1 = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Label("some text"));
    Gtk::Label *label2 = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Label("some more text"));

    Gtk::Grid *grid = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Grid);
    Gtk::Box *vbox = dialog.get_message_area();

    I am a newcomer to Gtkmm and this mailing list, I have a question
regarding the use of the reparent command using gtkmm-3.
I am attempting to add several text labels to the MessageDialog. I wish
to position these labels below the dialog-secondary text using a grid
to achieve this. The following snippet of code works but gives the
following warning.
Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to add a widget with type GtkBox to a container
of type gtkmm__GtkWindow, but the widget is already inside a container of
type GtkBox, please use gtk_widget_reparent()

I understand that the format for the reparent function is
 gtk_widget_reparent(original widget,new widget);

I am trying to reparent the MessageDialog's vertical box with my new one
Every attempt I have made so far has failed...

//Snippet of my code
// The true in Messagedialog is becuse the Message string contains pango markup
Gtk::MessageDialog dialog(*this,Message->c_str(),true,Gtk::MESSAGE_INFO,Gtk::BUTTONS_CLOSE);

    // some text labels that I wish to add to the MessageDialog
    Gtk::Label *label1 = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Label("some text"));
    Gtk::Label *label2 = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Label("some more text"));

    // then the box and grid I wish to add
      Gtk::Grid *grid = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Grid);
     Gtk::Box *vbox = Gtk::manage(new Gtk::Box(Gtk::ORIENTATION_VERTICAL, 0));

    vbox = dialog.get_message_area(); // make vbox the new message area

    // The next line of code is where I have the problem.
    gtk_widget_reparent(???,???);   //What do I place here ?

    add(*vbox);                       // add the new vbox
    vbox->add(*grid);                 // then the grid
    grid->attach(*label,0,2,1,1);     // finally position the labels

dialog.set_secondary_text("secondary text");

     vbox->show_all();                 // display it;

I would appreciate any pointers on how I can achieve this.
Thank you.
