Detailed Description

A source of a type of observable event.

Signals are recognized points where significant events can be observed. Compositors as well as the server can provide signals. Observers are wl_listener's that are added through wl_signal_add. Signals are emitted using wl_signal_emit, which will invoke all listeners until that listener is removed by wl_list_remove() (or whenever the signal is destroyed).

Gets the listener struct for the specified callback.

Parameters:

signal The signal that contains the specified listener
notify The listener that is the target of this search

Returns:

the list item that corresponds to the specified listener, or NULL if none was found
