[Mono-winforms-list] Drawing in a winform using Gtk C# in Xamarin Studio

Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately I'm new to all of this and I don't know what I'm doing so I'll try to explain
I'm running Windows 7.I downloaded Monodevelop Xamarin StudioWhen I start a project I choose New SolutionFrom there I chose .NET and Gtk# 2.0 ProjectI then select MainWindow.cs opened with Window Designer
I get a form to design and create code for the objects I place on the form.
When I run the program I get a "Window" that contains all my buttons, etc.
So that's where I'm at.
I've placed a "DrawingArea" object (or widget?) from the toolbox onto the form.
Now I would like to draw to that drawing area.
So I need to find some documentation or tutorials on how to do that.
That's where I'm at.
So what am I using here? Is this a Gtk C# window? Or a Winform?
And can I use a standard Windows form in this studio? I used to have Microsoft C# studio and I could draw to a windows forms pretty easily. But it doesn't seem to work the same in the Monodevelop Xamarin studio.
I just need to get past this graphics problem and I can get on with writing my code to draw the simulations I want to program.
I just can't figure out how to draw to the "DrawingArea" object, or widget?
I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do that and I couldn't find one.

You should either use WinForms or GTK#, not both.
If you want to use WinForms, then you should draw using GDI+, the same way you would in .NET.
If you want to use GTK#, then you should draw using GDK (http://docs.go-mono.com/?link=T%3aGdk.Pixbuf).
I'm looking for help or tutorials on how to draw to a drawingarea on a Windows Form using C# in Xamarin Studio. I just need to draw simple shapes, line, rectangles, circles, and be able to fill them in with color.
A simple sample code would be great.
I haven't been able to find anything on YouTube or Google.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
