Re: Are there such tings like custom signals?

However, that is separate from knowing that the button has been pushed,
so you can then start the communications. For this, is there any reason
to use a custom signal? Wouldn't it be easier to catch the standard
signal emitted when a button is pushed, by attaching a call-back routine?

Infact there is no need for a custom signal once you know about GIOChannel.
But my question was intended for general cases. If I need to trigger a complicated task when a button is pushed I'll write a callback to manage the standard signal in which I'll start my $COMPLEX_PROCESS then return. The question was about how to write $COMPLEX_PROCESS: it doesn't involve GUI so it doesn't have any standard signal, but I'd like to have the signal-callback paradigm and I was wondering if GTK gives me some tool or if I have to rely on an external infrastructure for it.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something: remember, I'm really new in this world and my questions could and probably are stupid...
