[Mono-list] Label With Very Large Font

My interface requires that I display a very large number on my form (at least
1" in height).  I'm attempting to do this with a standard Gtk.Label, but
have not been able to increase the font size all that much with the
following code.  Am I missing something?  Is there a better suited control
for displaying large numbers?


// setup the font for the ItemCount
// needs to be really large
Pango.FontDescription objFont2 = PangoContext.FontDescription.Copy ();
objFont2.Size = 275;
//objFont2.Size = (int)(objFont2.Size * Pango.Scale.XXLarge);
objFont2.Weight = Pango.Weight.Bold;
