Firstly if its a custom widget of your making and needs to run code..
it should generally not connect to signals on its own class... instead you
should implement the appropriate methods on the class directly.

A widget's visibility status is not exactly what you are looking for
(A widget's "visible" flag is TRUE if the client code wants the widget
to be visible... whether its on a page that is mapped or not).

You will (most probably) want to implement ->map() and ->unmap() in
your custom widget class to detect if its actually shown or not.
