curs_getyx(3curses) [sunos man page]

curs_getyx(3CURSES)					     Curses Library Functions					       curs_getyx(3CURSES)

NAME
curs_getyx, getyx, getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx - get curses cursor and window coordinates SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ] #include <curses.h> void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x); void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x); void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x); void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x); DESCRIPTION
With the getyx() macro, the cursor position of the window is placed in the two integer variables y and x. With the getparyx() macro, if win is a subwindow, the beginning coordinates of the subwindow relative to the parent window are placed into two integer variables, y and x. Otherwise, -1 is placed into y and x. Like getyx() , the getbegyx() and getmaxyx() macros store the current beginning coordinates and size of the specified window. RETURN VALUES
The return values of these macros are undefined (that is, they should not be used as the right-hand side of assignment statements). ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |Unsafe | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
curses(3CURSES), attributes(5) NOTES
The header <curses.h> automatically includes the headers <stdio.h> and <unctrl.h>. Note that all of these interfaces are macros and that ``&'' is not necessary before the variables y and x. SunOS 5.10 31 Dec 1996 curs_getyx(3CURSES)
