Yeah, data binding in Gtk# is a pain. I have written a custom TreeModel 
which can be used to display any IList (DataView with columns, Arrays, 
ArrayLists etc.), but as there appeared to be very less community 
interest and there are some more issues with that implementation, it was 
never included into Gtk# itself. If you are simply looking for a way to 
display and maybe IList data, using that TreeModel might be the best way 
to go. I attached the model and a sample application, but you'll have to 
change the

Gtk.TreeView treeview = new Gtk.TreeView (dolls); line to
Gtk.TreeView treeview = new Gtk.TreeView (new Gtk.IListStore (dolls));

If you're looking for a complete databinding toolkit, you should use 
gtk-databind (http://gtk-databind.sourceforge.net).
