Event Handling

Hello All,

I'm having some success with gtk2-perl. I'm liking how this software works. :-)

I have a question about events. I have some sample code that I took from one of the examples that hooks up an event handler to a Gnome2::Canvas::Rect as follows:

$rect->signal_connect (event=>&rectevent);

and then later there's the handler code:

sub rectevent
   warn("event: " . $event->type . "/n");

Nice, but this handler will receive all events. Is there a way to indicate to Gnome that my program is only interested in, say, "button-press" events and to call my handler only for "button-press" events. Or do I have to handle all possible events in my handler?
