If I understand correctly, you would like to create an image that acts
like a button, but does not have the borders that a button has.

If you take a look at the documentation for Gtk.Image, you'll find
that you can include the Image inside a Gtk.EventBox to hook it up to

Here's an example.  Keep in mind that this example is incomplete and
you would still have to provide a one or two more methods and hook up
some additional events, depending on what you wanted.

public static void Main (string [] args) 
	Gtk.Window window;
	EventBox eventbox;
	Gtk.Image image;
	Application.Init ();
	window = new Gtk.Window ("Eventbox");
	window.DeleteEvent += new DeleteEventHandler (delete_event);

	window.BorderWidth = 10;

	eventbox = new EventBox ();
	window.Add (eventbox);
	image = new Gtk.Image ("myImage.png");
	eventbox.Add (image);
	image.Show ();

	eventbox.ButtonPressEvent += new ButtonPressEventHandler (exitbutton_event);



static void exitbutton_event (object obj, ButtonPressEventArgs args)
