A GtkWindow can be one of these types.
Most things you'd consider a "window" should have type
Gtk::WINDOW_TOPLEVEL; windows with this type are
managed by the window manager and have a frame by default (call
set_decorated() to toggle the frame).
Windows with type Gtk::WINDOW_POPUP are ignored by the window
manager; window manager keybindings won't work on them, the window manager
won't decorate the window with a frame, many GTK+ features that rely on the
window manager will not work (e.g. resize grips and maximization/minimization).
Gtk::WINDOW_POPUP is used to implement widgets such as
GtkMenu or tooltips that you normally don't think of
as windows per se.
Nearly all windows should be Gtk::WINDOW_TOPLEVEL. In particular,
do not use Gtk::WINDOW_POPUP just to turn off the window
borders; use set_decorated() for that.
A regular window, such as a dialog.
A special window such as a tooltip.
