I had wanted to validate an entry field as keystrokes were made, so as to exclude invalid characters. I registered a callback for DW_KEY_PRESS_EVENT using dw_signal_connect. Whilst this does indeed trap keystrokes, the contents of a key buffer appear to be saved and inserted into the entry field after the return from the callback. Returning 1 to indicate that the default action should not be taken appears not to be efficacious. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I am doing wrong here?
