[SOLVED] Getting started with GTK programming for Xfce

Can anyone suggest suitable resources for learning to program with GTK with the intention of writing applications for Xfce? I've found a couple of websites about learning GTK 3 (which I assume is the version to use for Xfce) but am not sure if they are the best choices when targetting Xfce. The ones I've found so far are:

(I previously posted about getting started with writing a panel plugin but now realise I probably need to take a step back and learn GTK first.)

Edit: I've now realised that the two links above appear to contain the same content, so I assume the typeerror.org one was simply copied from the gtk.org one.

The page you link is a good reference. Here are a few others to get you started:

In addition, its helpful to look at and review existing Xfce code.

Personally, I prefer the old documentation format: https://developer-old.gnome.org/references
The doc pages often contain useful introductions, not necessarily found in the new format.
In addition to or before the GTK doc, I suggest you read some GObject doc, in particular these pages :
* https://developer-old.gnome.org/gobject … bject.html
* https://developer-old.gnome.org/gobject … emory.html
* https://developer-old.gnome.org/gobject … rties.html
* https://developer-old.gnome.org/gobject … ignal.html
