Sets the device event mask (see GdkEventMask) for a widget. The event mask determines which events a widget will receive from device. Keep in mind that different widgets have different default event masks, and by changing the event mask you may disrupt a widget’s functionality, so be careful. This function must be called while a widget is unrealized. Consider Widget.addDeviceEvents for widgets that are already realized, or if you want to preserve the existing event mask. This function can’t be used with windowless widgets (which return FALSE from Widget.getHasWindow); to get events on those widgets, place them inside a gtk.EventBox and receive events on the event box.
