test_widget_send_key


Description:

[ Version ( since = "2.14" ) ]
public bool test_widget_send_key (Widget widget, uint keyval, ModifierType modifiers)

This function will generate keyboard press and release events in the middle of the first GdkWindow found that belongs to widget.

For windowless widgets like Button (which returns false from get_has_window), this will often be an input-only event window. For other widgets, this is usually widget->window. Certain caveats should be considered when using this function, in particular because the mouse pointer is warped to the key press location, see test_simulate_key for details.

Parameters:

widget

Widget to generate a key press and release on.

keyval

A Gdk keyboard value.

modifiers

Keyboard modifiers the event is setup with.

Returns:

whether all actions neccessary for the key event simulation were carried out successfully.
