Download the source and have a look at the demo/glade folder.. ;-) (I've
pasted the most important lines below)


         -- load up the glade file
         dialogXmlM <- xmlNew "simple.glade"
         let dialogXml = case dialogXmlM of
               (Just dialogXml) -> dialogXml
               Nothing -> error "can't find the glade file \"simple.glade\" \
                                \in the current directory"
         -- get a handle on a couple widgets from the glade file
         window <- xmlGetWidget dialogXml castToWindow "window1"
         button <- xmlGetWidget dialogXml castToButton "button1"
