Re: Help me in the relationship between Xlib's windowID and GTK widget

Thank your reply. Actually I want to implement one GTK application can simulate user input for other application, for example, my application can "fill" the editbox of B window, then "press" the OK button of B window, such actions are implemented by sending GTK event to them from my application, just like the user input to B.

I've tried many ways to get the GtkWidget of editbox and button but no result, can I use gnome API or windows manager(such as sawfish) to do it, Or other method? I use C/C++.

Thanks again!

X windows are a server resources, which is why one app can see the
windows of another. However, the GtkWidget structures are client side,
so you can't access them, so what you ask isn't really possible.

Without knowing what you are trying to do, it is a bit difficult to
recommend an alternative. For some problems, Bonobo might be the answer.
