Method

GdkEventget_source_device

Declaration [src]

GdkDevice*
gdk_event_get_source_device (
  const GdkEvent* event
)

Description [src]

This function returns the hardware (slave) GdkDevice that has triggered the event, falling back to the virtual (master) device (as in gdk_event_get_device()) if the event wasn’t caused by interaction with a hardware device. This may happen for example in synthesized crossing events after a GdkWindow updates its geometry or a grab is acquired/released.

If the event does not contain a device field, this function will return NULL.

Available since:3.0
