 Hello list,
My first post here.

I would like to set a static background on a window. By static I mean I
will not need that image to respond to anything.
I then want to also be able to add other items to the window on top of
the image, and draw other things on top.

Can anyone point me to a tutorial or examples that can accomplish this?

I am quite new to C#....but am familiar with GTK....somewhat.
I can do this without a problem in Java...I hope it can be done here too.

Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated...I will even go as far as
to double your salary!!

 You have two choices:

- Using Gnome.Canvas
- Using System.Drawing through Gtk.DotNet

I'm not quite sure if using Gtk.DrawingArea allows you to draw
Gtk.Widgets on the top of the images, but I'm sure that Gnome.Canvas
allows it.

With this few information now you can start ;)


 How is this for cross platform?
 I am just starting with C# and Mono....
 If I use the System.Drawing....would that be more apt to work on
other platforms using Mono? Or is this not really going to port to
anything accept what I design it in?
