I see.

Instead of my original idea, you can disconnect the handler of each
spinner before changing its value by program and reconnect it
afterwards, but you will need to know the handler_id for that, and if
you know the handler_id you can block the signal, as you say.

I haven't ever use Glade, so I don't know if it is possible to know the

Without knowing the handler_id, maybe you can use "stop_emission()" just
after using "set_value()"?

I think your best bet is to investigate how to access the handler_id
under Glade. It should be possible, but I cannot help you with that, my
experience with Glade is zero...
