Another GTK Problem

Dear lazyweb, Anybody know how I can put embedded links (for example into a GtkTreeView? Please tell me I don't need to create my own renderer. Ideas welcome, code snippets or links rewarded with beer. Thanks.

  1. I don't see any way around creating your own renderer, but it shouldn't be hard. Subclass GtkCellRendererText, set the underline and foreground color properties to make the text look like a link, and implement the activate() method. May need to change the mouse cursor too, not sure.
