This command will generate trigger named signals for a specified widget.
The following includes a list of those signal types specified within the Gtk widget set source code. The range of signals supported by widgets varies and those programmers wishing to using this command are advised to consult the Gtk API documentation for more more specific details.
NOTE: The above list is experimental and subject to change. Whilst the event names are exactly those used internally by the Gtk+ libraries, these are not consistent with the established Gnocl naming conventions which, for example, would prefer 'buttonPress' rather than 'button_press_event'.
The gnocl::signalEvent command effectively emulates the function of user interaction. Alternatively, it may be used to programmatically trigger widget events. The following example illustrates how, the script defined in the binding to a toolbar button can be triggered via a menu operation.
