First, please use the default font size. We can read your question even when it's small.

As for your question, what type of description are you looking for? If you just want to use GtkEntry, you can create a new widget with gtk_entry_new(). It will handle text entry for you. The widget's API gives information on how to retrieve the text that is in it and interact with the widget.

If you are asking how it works under the hood, I would recommend that you get a little deeper into GTK+ before you investigate that. It deals with IM contexts, layouts, exposure and realization of widgets, and a lot of more complex concepts. I can explain it if you want, but I'll refrain for now just in case that's not what you're asking.

Hi Guys ,

I have gone through the GtkImContext libraries in Gtk but its not much clear to me .? Could anyone put a flash on ImContexts .

I want to understand the Working of GtkEntry , i.e. How does Gtk internally handles key events when User press a character in GtkEntry Widget ? what is the layout / exposure etc .

Thanks in Advance :
