NAME
form_field_buffer, set_field_buffer, field_buffer, set_field_status, field_status, set_max_field - set and get forms field attributes
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lform -lcurses [ library... ] #include <form.h> int set_field_buffer(FIELD *field, int buf, char *value); char *field_buffer(FIELD *field, int buf); int set_field_status(FIELD *field, int status); int field_status(FIELD *field); int set_max_field(FIELD *field, int max);
DESCRIPTION
set_field_buffer() sets buffer buf of field to value. Buffer 0 stores the displayed contents of the field. Buffers other than 0 are appli- cation specific and not used by the forms library routines. field_buffer() returns the value of field buffer buf. Every field has an associated status flag that is set whenever the contents of field buffer 0 changes. set_field_status() sets the status flag of field to status. field_status() returns the status of field. set_max_field() sets a maximum growth on a dynamic field, or if max=0 turns off any maximum growth.
RETURN VALUES
field_buffer() returns NULL on error. field_status() returns TRUE or FALSE. set_field_buffer(), set_field_status(), and set_max_field() return one of the following: E_OK Thefunction returned successfully. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error E_BAD_ARGUMENT An argument is incorrect.
