Hello all,

I have been trying to get nplot (http://netcontrols.org/nplot/) 
to work with gtk/glade# but I can't work out how to correctly get the 
returned system.drawing.graphics into a gtk.image.

Currently I am using with following:
       NPlot.PlotSurface2D plotSurface;
       [Widget] Gtk.Image image1; 
       Bitmap b = new Bitmap (Xmax, Ymax);
       Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage (b);
       g.FillRectangle  (Brushes.White, 0, 0, Xmax, Ymax);
       Rectangle bounds = new Rectangle (0, 0, Xmax, Ymax);
              b.Save ("file.png", ImageFormat.Png);
       image1.FromFile = "file.png";

This works but doesn't seem very efficient. Should I not be using a 
gtk.image? Should I be using a pixmap somewhere? Could someone please 
give me some hints?

I am developing in linux with mono 1.0.5 and gtk# 1.0.4 but I would also 
like it to run in win32 with .net/gtk#.  Thanks in advance for any help.
