Hi all.

I'm trying to capture mouse events in a DrawingArea ( in Gtk3 ). I'm

Also, when I have used complex DrawingAreas in past projects, it was convenient to create a separate subclass. Here is the preamble from a Gtk2 DrawingArea-based widget I wrote:

# --begin code--

package Gtk2::MassCanvas;

use warnings;
use strict;
use 5.012;

use Glib qw/TRUE FALSE/;
use Gtk2;
use Cairo;
use Gtk2::Pango;

use Glib::Object::Subclass
       signals => {
               expose_event         => \&expose,
               configure_event      => \&resize,
               motion_notify_event  => \&on_motion,
               button_press_event   => \&on_click,
               button_release_event => \&on_release,
               key_press_event      => \&_on_key_press,
               scroll_event         => \&on_scroll,

# --end code--

This makes setting up signal handling a piece of cake. I don't know this still works in Gtk3, however,
