in reply to GTK2+glade and knowing who called

I haven't used Glade but can't you set the "user data" argument in Glade? That's the usual way of passing the useful data to callbacks. There also should be the $self argument which (IIRC) contains the widget that initiated the signal. Perhaps not very useful by itself.

# passing an anonymous array as user data $button->signal_connect(clicked => \&btn_search, [$searchbox, $res_vbo +x]); sub btn_search { my ($self, $args) = @_; # unpacking user data my ($entry, $box) = @$args; # ...

    that would be the object next to the handler in the xml,
    the docs on glade state that you can not get that user data unless you create custom signals for everything.
    For my purpose the Object who called is enough to work with,
    at least for now ;), maybe i'll do the whole thing in c++ or go back to TK

    kind regards
