Hi Eduardo,

At the GTK-server website you can find two examples on how to do it.

These are:


(Indeed these examples cannot be found at my newLisp website.) The last example
is most easy to read, I think.

Anyway, in these programs you can see how it works. In short, the code looks
like this:

# Put some text on the canvas
(set 'LAYOUT (gtk_widget_create_pango_layout IMAGE {"Some text"}))
(gdk_draw_layout PIX GC 130 240 LAYOUT)

The variable 'IMAGE' points to a gtk_image, the variable 'PIX' to a gdk_pixmap,
and the variable 'GC' points to a gdk_gc.

Please refer to the Pango documentation for details on font size, type, and so
on. Of course additional Pango-functions must be added to the GTK-server
configfile first, before they can be used.

Hope this helps.
