Re: Set background color to ToggleButton

Hi, I'm writing a simple GTK# application trying to change the background
color to a ToggleButton:

            ToggleButton firstButton = new ToggleButton ("Push me",

However, the background color does not change when it's pushed.
Do you know how can I change the toggle's background color when the button
is pushed?

GTK# is some sort of wrapper around GTK. How exactly it behaves will, I suppose, depend on the GTK version. In current GTK 3, the APIs that used to do things such as changing the background color of widgets have been disabled: they're still present, but they don't actually do anything any more. You now have to use CSS or low-level cairo (graphics library) operations to do this sort of thing. Maybe GTK# will catch up with these changes at some point.
