NAME
     dynamic_field_info, field_info -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <form.h>

     int
     dynamic_field_info(FIELD *field, int *drows, int *dcols, int *max);

     int
     field_info(FIELD *field, int *rows, int *cols, int *frow, int *fcol, int *nrow, int *nbuf);

DESCRIPTION
     The function dynamic_field_info() returns the sizing information for the field given.  The
     function will return the number of rows, columns and the maximum growth of the field in the
     storage pointed to by the drows, dcols and max parameters respectively.  Dynamic field
     information cannot be requested for the default field.  If the field given is not dynamic
     then dynamic_field_info() will simply return the size of the actual field.  The field_info()
     will return the number or rows, columns, field starting row, field starting column, number
     of off screen rows and number of buffers in rows, cols, frow, fcol, nrow and nbuf respec-
     tively.

RETURN VALUES
     The functions will return one of the following error values:

     E_OK		The function was successful.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT	A bad argument was passed to the function.

NOTES
     The header <form.h> automatically includes both <curses.h> and <eti.h>.
