Other Methods

This section describes the remaining GnomeCanvasItem methods, including event, point, bounds, realize, unrealize, map, and unmap.


The GnomeCanvasItem class has a slot in its vtable called event; this is the only GnomeCanvasItem class function associated with a signal. None of the stock canvas items implement a default handler for event, but of course your own canvas item could.

The return value of event works just like the GtkWidget "event" signal; if the last signal handler returns FALSE, the event is propagated to the item's parent item (by emitting the event signal on the parent), if TRUE propagation ends.
