Well, just looking around at the docs at go-mono.org:8080 should help,
but here's a sample app I've been working on which graphs the Mandelbrot
set: http://lewisworld.org/~mark/mandelbrot

Basically, you need to draw onto the widget's Gdk.Window.  The easiest
way to do this is probably on the Exposed event, but that's up to you.=20
Look at the documentation for Gdk.Drawable to see what the drawing
methods available are.

In the example I linked to, I'm actually drawing onto a Pixmap, and then
drawing the pixmap to the screen.   The code is almost the same as just
drawing directly to the screen, but it's more efficient with XServer.

Hope that helps
