form_opts(3)        UNIX Programmer's Manual         form_opts(3)

NAME

     form_opts - set and get form options

SYNOPSIS

     #include <form.h>
     int set_form_opts(FORM *form, OPTIONS opts);
     int form_opts_on(FORM *form, OPTIONS opts);
     int form_opts_off(FORM *form, OPTIONS opts);
     OPTIONS form_opts(const FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION

     The function set_form_opts sets all the given form's option
     bits (form option bits may be logically-OR'ed together).

     The function form_opts_on turns on the given option bits,
     and leaves others alone.

     The function form_opts_off turns off the given option bits,
     and leaves others alone.

     The function form_opts returns the form's current option
     bits.

     The following options are defined (all are on by default):

     O_NL_OVERLOAD
          Overload the REQ_NEW_LINE forms driver request so that
          calling it at the end of a field goes to the next
          field.

     O_BS_OVERLOAD
          Overload the REQ_DEL_PREV forms driver request so that
          calling it at the beginning of a field goes to the pre-
          vious field.

RETURN VALUE

     Except for form_opts, each routine returns one of the fol-
     lowing:

     E_OK The routine succeeded.

     E_SYSTEM_ERROR
          System error occurred (see errno).

SEE ALSO

NOTES

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