[lazarus] GTK colors, pixmaps, GC's...

Look at the gtkobject.inc file.  There are many examples of this.  Look at the procedures called FillRect or DrawText , etc.  I am passing the color into the gtk_draw_??? method to modify the colors.
Remember, this is PASCAL not C++ but it's really the same.

I'm having a rough time getting GTK colors working, maybe one of you can
help.  First, I can't seem to create a drawing area then initialize it's
background color.  Second, even if I could do that, I'm really hazy on
setting a color to draw on that surface.  The GC examples I've seen just
don't make sense to me (malloc vs. new or maybe some easier way altogether).

Ideally, I'd like to see a code snippet that just has a main window, a
container filled with a drawing area, then have it filled with a
back-pixmap of a specified color.  Then I'd like to draw a line (with code,
not mouse) of another color on the surface.  Short of a code snippet, any
tips or references to lazarus code that does this sort of thing would be
