X Cancel | Figure 3: Glade project options
The Palette is the key component in Glade. Here you will find all the widgets you can use to create your interface. The Palette displays three different kinds of widgets: GTK+ Basic, GTK+ Additional, and Gnome. There are buttons for each at the top of the Palette window, and clicking on one will display the widgets available for each category. GTK+ Basic, as the name suggests, provides basic components such as buttons, windows, and menus. GTK+ Additional provides more sophisticated, though less commonly used, GTK+ widgets. Gnome lists the Gnome widgets. These conform to the functions in the Gnome libraries. Of particular note is the Gnome application window, which provides a Gnome application window with basic menus and toolbar already installed. Figure 4 shows the Glade Palette displaying the GTK+ widgets.
