[Mono-devel-list] Cairo and System.Drawing

Hello all.

Thanks for the answer here below.  Quick question for you all, by
integrating GTK# with Cairo, do you mean that you would retain the GTK#
implementation for forms (and as a wrapper for all the other stuff that GTK#
encompasses) but plug Cairo into the backend of the GTK# stuff for
performing the rendering?

This would mean I guess that controls rendered by GTK# would take the
underlying visual characteristics of Cairo, and that user defined controls
that override the paint method for display would then look consistent with
GTK# supplied controls.

There is still no integration of Gtk# and System.Drawing, something that
we should do at some point.
