View Full Version : GtkSocket won't show in a GtkFixed

March 29th, 2012, 08:45 PM
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 filesys, on a Marvell ARM CPU. kernel is

GtkWidget *fixed = gtk_fixed_new ();
gtk_widget_show( fixed );
socket = gtk_socket_new();
#if 1
// this line lets the code work
gtk_container_add( GTK_CONTAINER( window ), socket );
// with this line, it fails to show the contents of the socket
gtk_fixed_put( GTK_FIXED( fixed ), socket, 0, 0 );
gtk_widget_show( socket );

I need to use the (non-working) gtk_fixed_put scheme, since I need to add multiple widgets to the window. I am getting a gtk critical error from the gtk_fixed_put li\
ne: assertion GTK_IS_ANCHORED (socket) failed.

Can anyone tell me why gtk_fixed_put is failing, when gtk_container_add works?

Thanks for any ideas,
