I need a way to chage the colors of a GtkEntry ( and TreeView as well ) so that the user can change the appearance of an application while an application is running. Can anyone give an example of how to do this using the C programming language? I'm using gtk+ 3 on Fedora , if that matters. Thanks for any input!

I've tinkered with theming using Python a little bit. This is pretty basic, but it works for textviews and treeviews. I'd be interested in hearing how other people have done this. If you can convert it to C, the code I've used looks like this.

        bg = Gdk.Color.parse("#3c5541")[1]
        fg = Gdk.Color.parse("#eae28e")[1]
        hghlt = Gdk.Color.parse("#553c50")[1]
        ins = Gdk.Color.parse("#5c8263")[1]
        #Widget background
        #self.window.override_background_color(Gtk.StateType.NORMAL, ins)
        # Apply texview colors
        self.texview.modify_bg(Gtk.StateType.NORMAL, bg)
        self.texview.modify_fg(Gtk.StateType.NORMAL, fg)
        self.texview.modify_fg(Gtk.StateType.INSENSITIVE, ins)
        self.texview.modify_bg(Gtk.StateType.SELECTED, hghlt)
