Holly Widgets for GTK#


GTK# is a collection of bindings for the GTK+ toolkit within Gnome.  Using GTK# developers can build graphical interfaces using Mono with the Stetic designer of MonoDevelop.  This past week Daniel announced code complete on the Mono-GTK# mailing list:

I'm proud to present you with my last two weeks work - a gtk-sharp custom control library compatible 100% with monodevelop/stetic.

Included in the first release of Holly Widgets are the following controls:

HFontPicker - A office like font picker widget

HRegExEntry - A simple entry with regular expressions validation. Has a small icon that changes if the content is valid or invalid.
HColorPicker - A simple color picker drop-down ( office like )
HToolTip - A nice ballon tooltip window

HTreeView - A simple to use TreeView? widget, similar to the winforms one
HComboTree - A easy to use combobox with a treeview ( HTreeView ) inside
