The fields argument in this function is a pointer to a NULL terminated array of fields that will be attached to the form. If there are already fields attached to the form then they will be detached before the new fields are attached. The new fields given must not be attached to any other form. The move_field() function will move the given field to the location specified by frow and fcol. RETURN VALUES
