OpenDarwin 7.2.1 - man page for form_post (opendarwin section 3x)

form_post(3X)												form_post(3X)

NAME
form_post - write or erase forms from associated subwindows
SYNOPSIS
#include <form.h> int post_form(FORM *form); int unpost_form(FORM *form);
DESCRIPTION
The function post_form displays a form to its associated subwindow. To trigger physical display of the sub- window, use refresh or some equivalent curses routine (the implicit doupdate triggered by an curses input request will do). The function unpost_form erases form from its associated subwindow.
RETURN VALUE
These routines return one of the following: E_OK The routine succeeded. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error occurred (see errno). E_BAD_ARGUMENT Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument. E_POSTED The form has already been posted. E_BAD_STATE Routine was called from an initialization or termination function. E_NO_ROOM Form is too large for its window. E_NOT_POSTED The form has not been posted. E_NOT_CONNECTED No items are connected to the form.
SEE ALSO
curses(3X), form(3X).
NOTES
The header file <form.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.
PORTABILITY
These routines emulate the System V forms library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
