I am at learning phase of C and GTK and i wrote following code in callbacks.c
but it get compiles without error but if i click a button (button1) the GNOME Bugbudddy comes

# include <config.h>

#include <gtk/gtk.h>
#include "callbacks.h"
#include "interface.h"
#include "support.h"

on_button1_clicked (GtkButton *button,
gpointer user_data)
GtkWidget * label = lookup_widget(GTK_WIDGET(button), "label1");
GtkWidget * entry1 = lookup_widget(GTK_WIDGET(button), "entry1");
GtkWidget * entry2 = lookup_widget(GTK_WIDGET(button), "entry2");
GtkWidget * entry3 = lookup_widget(GTK_WIDGET(button), "entry3");
gint numone = 0;
gint numtwo = 0;
numone = gtk_entry_get_text(GTK_ENTRY(entry1));
numtwo = gtk_entry_get_text(GTK_ENTRY(entry2));
gint ans = 0;
ans = numone + numtwo;
gtk_label_set_text(GTK_LABEL(label),"The solution is:");
I think the error is in this statement:

ans = numone + numtwo;

Thanks in advance...

I think your problem is that:
gtk_entry_get_text() returns a pointer to a character string which contains the "text" value internal to the widget.

Therefore when it executes: numone = gtk_entry_get_text(GTK_ENTRY(entry1));
numone is actually an address, not the numeric value of the string.

Your ans = numone + numtwo simply adds two pointer values.

When you perform the gtk_entry_set_text(GTK_ENTRY(entry3),ans)
the value of "ans" is an address to some bogus memory location.

To do what you want to do (assuming that you want to stick with a GtkEntry widget (instead of a GtkSpinButton which is what I recommend) you will have to convert the string to a numerical value ( look at the function "strtol" ) to assign it to your gint values. Then after calculating the answer (ans) convert it back to a string using sprintf before using gtk_entry-set_text() which requires a string pointer.

(Note: to clarify, by "string I am referring to a char* or char array, NOT the C++ STL string class.)
