Please install Monodoc and take a look at the following title:
Gnome Libraries -> Gtk -> DrawingArea
Regard the methods and the properties of this class!

Attention please, afaik Gdk is only an interface between Gtk and the
windowing system, so it's not meant to have the same goals as Gtk.

If you check Gnome libraries topic on Monodoc, you'll get the answers to
your last question.

Hope this help you,
Paulo Pires
