I already have a standalone version of the synth. Adding VST support
isnt that important for me, I was just curious whether it could be done.
As it seems, its more complicated than expected.

I STRONGLY, STRONGLY recommend that you do NOT use GTK or any other
desktop GUI toolkit for an audio plugin UI.
It is extremely problematic. Doing so on Windows is likely to cause
even more problems than it does on Linux.
Please don't do it.
Mea culpa: I don't have a clearly better suggestion for you.

I would like to develop the GUI for a VST synth with gtk. I need
to embed a gtk gui inside a win32 HWND parent window. I think
"gdk_win32_window_foreign_new_for_display" could be the right
function to create a GdkWindow that is embedded inside the native
window. is this correct?
I tried to create a GUI thread this way:
auto app = Gtk::Application::create("test");
auto settings = Gtk::Settings::get_default();
auto disp = Gdk::Display::get_default();
auto gdkWindow =
initApp(&window); //creating widgets
"systemWindow" is a HWND given by the VST host (in my case
FLStudio). Unfortunately, the window remains black, no gui drawn.
I would be greatful for suggestions
