Hi Alex,

Thanks for the review!

I took a quick look at the wip/carlosg/event-delivery branch.

Here are some things in the tests that seems broken from interactive

 - click on close button gives:
    Gtk-CRITICAL **: _gtk_widget_captured_event: assertion 'WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' 
   This also happens in many other cases
  - button box:
     Click on button, hold down, mouse to other button => it
     prelights. Should not have gotten enter notify due to implicit
  - eventbox:
     above child is not working
  - expander:
     Press on expander, mouse outside window, release, now the
     expander expands when you enter the window
  - panes:
     Resizing the pane doesn't work
  - spinbutton:
     clicking on the buttons in the spinbutton shows really weird
     prelight behaviour
  - spinbutton:
     Can't hold down button on spinbutton button to step
  - test scroll:
     Can't keep scrolling when cursor is outside toplevel (implicit
     grab not working)

Some of those (the warning, panes not working yet) were already on my
list. The implicit grab issue is a nice gotcha...

  - After startup, if I click on last row ("Menus") it doesn't properly
    repaint the selected row

Besides getting some i/o chld windows out of the way, I'm not sure how
could the stuff in the branch have affected rendering. When I started
the branch, I was also seeing artifacts on master, and removing i/o
windows kinda helped. Now after a recent rebase they got worse in my
branch, but seem better in master...

  - combo boxes: mouse press + move on combo does not work, must click
    and then move

Hmm, it seems now combobox pops up on button release, in master too.
Seems to have changed compared to gtk3-demo indeed.

  - icon view basics: Scrolling the icon view verticaly doesn't
    repaint correctly
  - list box: click on expand button, then you can use enter to
    activate it, then mouse to expand button on row below => hover,
    now hit enter. the button scrolls away from the mouse, but
    it doesn't unhover
  - interactive overlay: buttons over entry get prelights and clicks
    instead of the entry stealing them

Hmm, the demo however sets the overlay as passthrough?

  - popovers: The icons in the entry doesn't accept clicks, nor do the

Yeah, both GtkEntry icons and calendars are b0rk so far. These bits
rely too badly on properly laid out GdkWindows and event->any.window
checks, so need a bit of a refactor besides input handling.

  - tree view/list store - size allocation is broken, and "Fixed?"
    checkbutton is not working

Right, events on cell renderers in general are broken, didn't look too
deep into this yet.

Some code review:

I worry about the GtkWidget::pick vfunc and the consistency of the
widget geometry. The implementation of gtk_widget_real_pick relies on
the widget hieararhy being correctly allocated, which is only true
directly after a layout pass. For instance, the current code will
re-pick immediately whenever the focus target is destroyed, which will
typically happen in the middle of some random code that changes
the widget hierarchy. You can't rely on the widget allocation at
this point. It may be uninitialized for new widgets, or just wrong
if some other widget got removed which will cause the widget to shift.

Indeed, ::pick should check some invariants beforehand. And right, my
next most fundamental change in the todo is tackling event compression
differently, so GTK is given all received events, and performs
frame-sync motion compression by default.

In this picture, repicking should also be a delayed operation, so all
generated crossing events are propagated in the same clock stage.

In the current framework our events are based on GdkWindow positions,
and these are set at size allocation time and are valid until the next
size allocation, so it doesn't have this problem.

I think picking fundamentally has to be tied to the layout cycle, we
can't just do it whenever we feel like it. For more thoughts about
this, see my previous review on this:

I think we essentially agree :).

The default picking system always treats widgets as rectangular. This
is a regression at least for GtkPopover, which currently uses input
shapes to get correct event handling for the rounded corners. However,
it strikes me that if we make it a slightly bit smarter we could
handle CSS corners in general vs input. For instance, we could have
"mouse enter" on a button with rounded corners only when the pointer
is actually inside the css box (i.e. not when its on the rounded part
of the corner).

You're right. gtk_widget_real_pick() is still a bit simplistic wrt the
input shape, should be easy to fix. Making it dependent on the CSS box
sounds cool, however popover is still a separate usecase since its
pointy area is not quite CSS-y.

GtkPointerFocus is not refcounted, and is seemingly freed in various
callbacks. I can't swear this is an issue, but it seems likely that we
can run into cases where some code acesses it and then it gets freed
due to some state change in a function call and when we get back
we continue to access the freed object.

Sure, will add some refcounting so the struct is good while operating
on it. As the theory goes, each pointer enter or touch down will
generate a brand new GtkPointerFocus as seen by

The notify_types for the crossing events seem wrong:
This sends the same notify type to all the widgets involved in the
crossign events, which is not right. The first and last widget
to get events should get different details. See this for the details:

This seems to cause issues like the one worked around by:

Oops, you are indeed correct, quite an oversight.

I wonder if at some point we could move the map vfunc to the toplevel?
Should any child widget ever need to do anything on map?

Not a strong opinion. Probably map is useless now for (most, yet)
child widgets, but unmap not so much (eg. to stop timeouts that apply
while mapped), so might be nice to preserve for parity.
