[maemo-developers] HildonAnimationActor and button events

From: Cornelius Hald hald at icandy.de

the documentation of HildonAnimationActor states that by design it is
not reactive. Meaning that actors do not receive motion or button

The thing is, I want to get notified if someone clicks on my actor, so
how can I do this?

I have a half working solution: I'm using a signal emission hook to
catch all button events that have been emitted. Then I translate the
button press coordinates into coordinates of the main window. With those
coordinates I check whether or not the click was on my actor or not.

The problem is, that the signal is propagated further, so if there is,
for example, a button under my actor it will also receive the button
clicked event. I don't want that. I want that it stops after being
handled by my actor. I tried using g_signal_stop_emission() inside the
signal hook function, but glib tells me that this is not allowed.

I'm really lost here, help would be very much appreciated :)
