GGAD has a little info on it.


The API is pretty descriptive, and if the monodocs aren't fleshed out
you can use the C docs at gtk.org/api to get more info.

No difference.  The point is that you are likely to just need to draw
boxes and straight lines and paint text and maybe some nav arrows, all
of which is suited nicely to Style, and by using the Style class, when
the user changes their theme, all your lines and fonts and colors and so
on will be adjusted to match the built in widgets in Gtk.

Gtk.Style is just a tool to make it easier for your widgets blend in
with the theme.
