    drawing and filling rectangles [gtk+]

    Hi guys. This question regards gtk+ gui development.
    This code:

    RECT lpRect;
    case WM_PAINT:
    HDC hdc = BeginPaint(hwnd, &ps);
    GetClientRect(hwnd, &lpRect);
    HBRUSH Brush=CreateSolidBrush(RGB(0,0,0));
    lpRect.bottom = 30;
    FillRect(hdc, &lpRect, Brush);
    EndPaint(hwnd, &ps);
    is win32 api working code for win32 app. Lets say my app is 200 px in high, so it fils 30 px from top border with black color. Another thing, that code is in Message Loop so any positions changes i'll do - this area is filled.

    Now, how to do same thing in gtk+? If i will use win api in gtk app (my app is for windows, yes) - it is not in message loop so it is useless, when app window gets repaint - it overrides it with default color of currently selected gtk theme.
    Thanks in advance

    GTK uses callbacks rather than a user-defined message loop, so you'll need to register your function with the library.
    I'm too lazy to explain how, if you care to read up on it there's a tutorial here - it has a specific example on a callback for when the window is repositioned.
