How we can write on C# in Linux: Implementing PanelApplet to Gnome Desktop

, 8 Mar 2010 CPOL
This article describes how we can use our programming skills on the .NET framework to implement platform-independent code
using System;

using Gtk;
using GConf;

using WeatherApplet.Model;

namespace WeatherApplet.View

	public class TreeView:Window

	Label filterEntry;
	public TreeView ():base("asdasd")
		//Create window
		ScrolledWindow sw = new Gtk.ScrolledWindow ();
		this.SetSizeRequest (500,200);
		// Create an Entry used to filter the tree
		filterEntry = new Gtk.Label ();
		// Fire off an event when the text in the Entry changes
		//filterEntry.Changed += OnFilterEntryTextChanged;
		// Create a nice label describing the Entry
		Gtk.Label filterLabel = new Gtk.Label ("Selected country:");
		// Put them both into a little box so they show up side by side
		Gtk.HBox filterBox = new Gtk.HBox ();
		filterBox.PackStart (filterLabel, false, false, 5);
		filterBox.PackStart (filterEntry, true, true, 5);
		// Create our TreeView
		Gtk.TreeView tree = new Gtk.TreeView ();
		// Create a box to hold the Entry and Tree
		Gtk.VBox box = new Gtk.VBox ();
		// Add the widgets to the box
		box.PackStart (filterBox, false, false, 5);
		sw.Add (tree);
		box.PackStart (sw, true, true, 5);

		//Create column	
		Gtk.TreeViewColumn countriesColumn = new Gtk.TreeViewColumn ();
