before I say anything else, I’d like to take this oppertunity to say hi
to everyone (at least all who’ll read this) since I’m new here.
now on to business!
here’s the thing:
I’m quite new to ruby and newer still to gtk (not a promising combo, but
hey… we all have to start somewhere, right? … right??) so my
knowledge of the gtk api isn’t all that good.
what I’m trying to do is basically this:
I’d like to make an application that would (among other things) take an
image file (let’s say the image is some sort of a map) and display it,
and allow the user to add markings to it (kind of like wikimapia does,
so basically you click on the image, and a dialog prompts you for
certain information that you wish to associate with that locations, and
once that’s done, that location gets that little rectangle thingy that
signifies that it’s marked. and somewhere on the side there’s a list of
all those markings.
now the problem is that, like I said, I’m not that familiar with gtk api
so I don’t know how to do that and which widgets and objects to use.
(for that map and mark thing)
any kind of help and/or suggestion would be greatly appriciated
