Re: Replacing Test::WWW::Selenium::Catalyst with Gtk3::WebKit

So my new approach is to generate a key event at Gtk3 level and send it to the

Gtk3::Gdk::Event::Key or Gtk3::Gdk::EventKey or anything like that. From
reading the .gir file the latter should exist, but it just doesn't. If it's
missing in the bindings, how could I add it? And even if I could create it, I
still don't know how to actually set the keycode field in the struct. There's
pretty much no documentation and lot's of guess work on how Perl maps to

Gtk3::Gdk::Event is one of the remaining construction sites for Glib::Object::Introspection/Gtk3 (the only other one is probably Gtk3::TreeIter in custom Gtk3::TreeModel implementations).

You can create new events with Gtk3::Gdk::Event->new($type):

You can also read struct fields by accessing the correct union member:


But there's no support for setting struct fields yet. (You can of course assign something to $event->key->{keyval}, but that won't change the underlying event object at the moment.)
