NAME
       userptr - associate application data with a form item

SYNOPSIS
       #include <form.h>
       int set_form_userptr(FORM *form, void *userptr);
       void* form_userptr(const FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION
       Every  form  and every form item has a field that can be used to hold application-specific
       data (that is, the form-driver code leaves it alone).  These functions  get  and  set  the
       form user pointer field.

RETURN VALUE
       The function form_userptr returns a pointer (which may be NULL).  It does not set errno.

       The function set_form_userptr returns E_OK (success).

SEE ALSO
       ncurses(3NCURSES), form(3FORM).

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.

       The user pointer is a void pointer.  We chose not to leave it as a char pointer	for  SVr4
       compatibility.
