Hi.
I'm new here.
I found this place in a google search so I hope new members are welcome here.
I am going to give your site a try to see how things turn out.

I always have good ideas but I am not skilled enough programmer to make my ideas.
I have done some programming in C .Sometimes I use C++ but I never use all the features so I stay with C.I am not used to GUI programming though.I decided to start with this program after playing with Anjuta and Glade and being thrilled with how much of the code was automatically generated. That's been a while though and reality has hit me ,that I have a long way to go.I'm making it a long term commitment though

I was working on a gtk program for writing svg diagrams with a diacanvas.

I have the following tasks to finish the program..

To add a diacanvas or other drawing area to my program.I know diacanvas is deprecated but it looks like the right library.

To open a gtk icon box to select objects to place in the canvas.I just need a preview of files I will keep in a directory.

Other drawing type problems I'm taking one at a time.

I'm looking for source code examples or tutorial links,book recommendations,especially free ones.

Any help ,even idle chat, is appreciated. :)
Thanks

I stayed up late and got my file open dialog figured out.
Also decided to go with rsvg and cairo.
cairo site has great examples.
I'll still have to figure out the icon boxes.

If you're looking for a book, I wrote Foundations of GTK+ Development, although it isn't free.

As for the icon box, you should check out the tree view tutorial at http://scentric.net/tutorial/. GtkIconView uses GtkTreeModel for rendering, so understanding GtkTreeView will let you understand GtkIconView.
