Specifies the type of the event.
Do not confuse these events with the signals that GTK+ widgets emit. Although many of these events result in corresponding signals being emitted, the events are often transformed or filtered along the way.
In some language bindings, the values GDK_2BUTTON_PRESS and GDK_3BUTTON_PRESS would translate into something syntactically invalid (eg Gdk.EventType.2ButtonPress, where a symbol is not allowed to start with a number). In that case, the aliases GDK_DOUBLE_BUTTON_PRESS and GDK_TRIPLE_BUTTON_PRESS can be used instead.
