Module ui.event

Events are messages that are passed through the widget tree.

Events need a "name" attribute as minimal data.

To see how event propagation works and how to make widgets event-aware see the implementation in ui.widget.container.widgetcontainer.

A detailed guide to events can be found in the event programmer's guide.
