Connect the "key_press_event" of the entry widget to an event-handler of
your own. Inside the handler you can do what you want.


  gtk_signal_connect(GTK_OBJECT(entryw), "key_press_event",
       GTK_SIGNAL_FUNC(entry_key_event), NULL);


static gint editl_key_event(GtkWidget* widget,
       GdkEventKey* event,
       gpointer   data){
gint key=event->keyval;

To get the meaning of "key", look at gdkkeysyms.h
