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

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