I'm writting a little source code editor using PyGTK for my own python education. Everything works, but I would like to be able to specify a background color for the current working line. I know how to use tags to change the background color for a specific line, but I don't know how to make this background color fill the full line, from left to right margin, not only the text part of the line.
I searched some help on google but it seems I can't find a solution (or maybe I don't know how to use google efficiently).
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
I hope my post is understable :?
hmm... it seems not a simple task... maybe you should use some gdk objects to do this... i think http://www.pygtk.org/pygtk2reference/index.html will be helpfull... and try to post to the pygtk ml... maybe someone out there would know the answer...

Maybe you have already solved it but someone else might look here for help.
The text-editor Scribes is written in PyGTK and seems to have that function, at least judging by the front-page screenshot, so check out their code.
