You're not really going to get this with GTK+ and GTK#. GTK's way of 
doing this is to use autosizing containers like tables, VBox/HBoxes, 
etc. in order to hold controls. These containers tell the controls how 
much space they're allowed, and the controls draw in it. This allows for 
easy autosizing of controls, but it does not make a grid system like 
Visual Studio's easy, or particularly useful.

There should be some GTK tutorials around that explain how to work with 
GTK's layout system. Glade tutorials may also be helpful, as Glade is 
the UI designer for GTK+/GTKmm (the original C library/C++ binding).

Good luck,
