The ::key-press-event signal is emitted when a key is pressed. The signal emission will reoccur at the key-repeat rate when the key is kept pressed.

To receive this signal, the gdk.Window associated to the widget needs to enable the GDK_KEY_PRESS_MASK mask.

This signal will be sent to the grab widget if there is one.
