Yes, that's a known gtk-doc issue with the developer.gnome.org
scripts; the actual page is:


You probably want to install DevHelp and have the documentation
locally, instead of using the website.

This is a gtk-perl-list question, really. The Perl bindings for GLib
typically use strings, not an enumeration, for flags; see:


the section about flags. So if you want to handle pointer events, you
want to use:

  [ "button-press-mask", "button-release-mask" ]

and if you want to get scrolling events, you want to add "scroll-mask"
and "smooth-scroll-mask".
