Re: Get widget variable name from event?

No you can't.

All you can do is

Object source = event.getSource();
if(source == panel) {
  //event fired by specific panel

But this only makes sense if you have multiple event sources for a single method, e.g.

@UiHandler({"panel1", "panel2"})
void onMouseOver(MouseOverEvent event) {
  //dispatch event source here.

The above code is pretty much the same as

MouseOverHandler handler = new MouseOverHandler() { //implement... }
