Hi Paulo,

Two things:

1. You need to show the Widget which is in the CanvasWidget, if it's a 
box you should use ShowAll();

2. You must set Width and Height properties of the CanvasWidget.

Your AddWidget should be like this:

private void AddWidget()
		VBox v = new VBox();
		v.PackStart(new Label("Testing label"), false, false,0);
		v.PackStart(new Button("Testing button"), false, false,0);
		Gnome.CanvasWidget canvas_widget = new Gnome.CanvasWidget(canvas.Root());
		canvas_widget.Width = 100;
		canvas_widget.Height = 100;
		canvas_widget.Widget = v;
