cc [ flag... ] file... -lmenu -lcurses [ library... ] #include <menu.h> int set_menu_format(MENU *menu, int rows, int cols); void menu_format(MENU *menu, int *rows, int *cols); DESCRIPTION
set_menu_format() sets the maximum number of rows and columns of items that may be displayed at one time on a menu. If the menu contains more items than can be displayed at once, the menu will be scrollable. menu_format() returns the maximum number of rows and columns that may be displayed at one time on menu. rows and cols are pointers to the variables used to return these values. RETURN VALUES
set_menu_format() returns one of the following: E_OK The routine returned successfully. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error. E_BAD_ARGUMENT An incorrect argument was passed to the routine. E_POSTED The menu is already posted. ATTRIBUTES

menu_format - set and get menu sizes SYNOPSIS
#include <menu.h> int set_menu_format(MENU *menu, int rows, int cols); void menu_format(const MENU *menu, int *rows, int *cols); DESCRIPTION
The function set_menu_format sets the maximum display size of the given menu. If this size is too small to display all menu items, the menu will be made scrollable. If this size is larger than the menus subwindow and the subwindow is too small to display all menu items, post_menu() will fail. The default format is 16 rows, 1 column. Calling set_menu_format with a null menu pointer will change this default. A zero row or column argument to set_menu_format is interpreted as a request not to change the current value. The function menu_format returns the maximum-size constraints for the given menu into the storage addressed by rows and cols. RETURN VALUE
These routines returns 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 menu is already posted. SEE ALSO
curses(3X), menu(3X). NOTES
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>. PORTABILITY
These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions. AUTHORS
