Im having trouble with gtk open file dialog it will open the first time but after i closed it i cant reopen it
Ive tried casting it as different objects but i cant seem to fix it.
After attempting to reopen the dialog box it spits out gtk_dialog_run: assertion 'GTK_IS_DIALOG (dialog)' failed.

//im pretty sure my problem is with one of these lines

anyone have any idea what could be the problem all im trying to do is get the open file dialog to open when i click a button ive searched and tried everything i know and it opens up the first time but after the first time it spits out gtk_dialog_run:assertion 'GTK_IS_DIALOG(dialog)' failed in terminal any help would be appreciated


has anyone ever actually used gtk on here ? surely at least one person has?

Thanks for the second link going over it now.

i looked at the zetcode page yesterday wasn't of any use to me :(

I would switch to wxWidgets but for the sake of simplicity(and ive already learned quite a bit

about GTK) I will try to stick to GTK.

Although i might give wxWidgets another spin(i used it once before but that was when i started

coding around 2 years ago but back then i was nowhere near where im at now i can barely fathom that

i got this far(mostly terminal code but still some of the concepts I have picked up just from

reading source in the past 5 weeks is just amazing)). By the way nice avatar :P

Edited by Celtrix: added some :P


still need some help but i got remoted on ubuntu so .... :( i no longer have all my code :(
