item factory menu parents
I'm trying to get the parent widget of a menu from the callback function of a menu created with item factory macro.
I was under the impression that i could get the parent via widget->parent But I'm sure i properly understand the menu hierarchy.
I start with a window and then attach a fixed container. Then i create a drawable that is a fraction the size of the fixed container and attach
the drawable to the fixed. I then create a menu and add it to the drawable.
Inside the menu callback i'm trying to get the drawable, which i thought would be the parent. Ie, widget->parent. but this is not working. I also tried widget->parent->parent. Right now i'm using a global widget for the drawable because i can't seem to figure out how to access the drawable from the menu item call back-- this a bad hack and i'd like to correct it very soon.
So i have:
What is the suggested method of obtaining the drawable from the menu item callback?
