[Gtk-sharp-list] Opening / Closing Windows

Hi Matthew!

I do this: I create a class for every window (well not for dialogs), so
for example, for 'informationwindow':

public bool IsOpen() {
      return accountsWindow.Visible;

And how I destroy/close it?, for example:

    private void  on_closeaccounts_button_clicked(System.Object obj,
EventArgs e) {

And the same for the DeleteEvent (the X).

But How can I know if there's an open window?, with this in the class
that I create that oobject (informationwindow).

if(pw =3D=3D null) {
          pw =3D new PostsWindow(this, client);
        else {
          if(!pw.IsOpen()) {

The first think I do is to check if the object is null, if it's null,
then I create the object and then show it. But what if isn't?, So I
check if I have tha tiwndow already open, if is NOT open I reload data
(in my case) and show it. If is open, do nothing..

See ya!
