I don't know exactly what you want to to, but if these four event boxes
are classes of a type you use just inside this table, i would consider
using a static stl-container (whatever seems suitable) class variable
where every instace registers during construction and unregisters on
destruction ...
But this is really just a guess, as i don't know what you want to do in
