Hi frnds,

I am currently working on screen orientation using GTK+. Already Xrendr is available but i want to implement it using gtk.Kindly throw some light on this issue.

So uhh, what exactly are you trying to accomplish? Using an app to tell RandR to turn the screen? If so, then this is what you're looking for: http://keithp.com/~keithp/talks/randr/protocol.txt (and it really has more to do with X programming than GTK+).

It sure would be nice if this functionality was exposed through GDK at some point in the future though (especially as future portable devices will want to use this quite a bit). Something like gdk_screen_[get/set]_rotation(), gdk_screen_[get/set]_reflect(), would be nice. I guess you could always file a bug report saying all of this, though.
