No. Sadly (or luckily, depending on one's point of view) a widget is
not an ordinary control. This has to be implemented in the widget.

To see this write one that handles only the mouse events, not to
speak of a clickable region.
Even this is hard to control: who gets first which mouseEvent, the
widget's script or the widget.
