       form_field_attributes - color and attribute control for form fields

       #include <form.h>
       int set_field_fore(FIELD *field, chtype attr);
       chtype field_fore(const FIELD *field);
       int set_field_back(FIELD *field, chtype attr);
       chtype field_back(const FIELD *field);
       int set_field_pad(FIELD *field, int pad);
       int field_pad(const FIELD *field);

       The  function set_field_fore sets the foreground attribute of field. This is the highlight
       used to display the field  contents.   The  function  field_fore  returns  the  foreground
       attribute.  The default is A_STANDOUT.

       The  function  set_field_back sets the background attribute of form. This is the highlight
       used to display the extent fields in the form.  The function field_back returns the  back-
       ground attribute.  The default is A_NORMAL.

       The  function  set_field_pad  sets  the	character  used  to fill the field.  The function
       field_pad returns the given form's pad character.  The default is a blank.

       These routines return one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

	    System error occurred (see errno).

	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       entry points.

       The header file <form.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.

       These  routines	emulate the System V forms library.  They were not supported on Version 7
       or BSD versions.
