[Gtk-sharp-list] GTK "canvas" widget?

Hi All,

This will be a blatant n00b question, but...  can anyone tell me the
objects/widgets that I should use for this scenario:

I want to have a Map object that draws to an off-screen buffer which can
be resized arbitrarily as the object that actually displays the the map
is resized.  Now I thought I might be able to use Gdk.Pixmap as the
off-screen buffer, and then use a Gdk.Window to display the Map, however
I haven't been able to figure out how exactly to go about copying the
Pixmap to the Window.  is Gdk too low-level for what I want to do?
(vector map, all I need to be able to do is draw lines on the
canvas/surface/pixmap/whatever, I can deal with the geometry stuff in my
Map object.)

If anyone can put me out of my misery, it would be greatly appreciated.
