Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] GTK+ issues

Hey all.


 I’ve come across a new problem that I’m having trouble with.  I need my plug-in to be able bring up a pop-up screen so that I can get the user to enter some information.  I had it working using the windoze API and it was working fine, however, obviously it’s not portable.  So I want to do the same thing in GTK.  Problem is, I can’t seem to get gtk to bring up anything without getting the most general error message possible. 


I get the error:


Gdk-ERROR **: That is a fatal error aborting…


Ironically enough.. this error is in a pop up.


The code I’m attempting to execute is :




                        fprintf(writeFile,"GTK is valid");







                        fprintf(writeFile,"GTK isn't Valid");








GtkWidget *window=NULL;

window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);

gtk_widget_show (window);




I get the response that “GTK is valid”


And I get the error when executing:

window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);


Trying to do something similar with a dialog fails when I try to show the dialog.


I know this is a lot to read.  Any help from the GUI masters at Wireshark would be appreciated.
