Finding documentation on Gtk# GUI development is really a problem. After
some time I found the developer resource section of the Mono page
(http://www.mono-project.com/Category:Developer_Resource). The problem
with the Mono Wiki in general is that most articles completly outdated
and some are full of errors . Generally I prefer MSDN if I can use it.
"Normal" visitors are not allowed to change the Mono Wiki. A good way
would be to allow changes by users with approval of one of the
developers. As I am definitly not the only user who is annoyed by the
Wiki(see IggyMa's blog
for a description that I can completly agree to :-) ) I think I'll write
a mail to the Mono list.
The same thing can be said about the monodoc documentation. At least the
Gtk# section did not get updated recently.
Really good documentation on Gtk+ is available on the Gnome website:
http://library.gnome.org/devel/references. Most of the information can
be used for Gtk# development as well.
