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 previous field.


RETURN VALUES

Except for form_opts(), each routine returns one of the following:

E_OK 

The routine succeeded.

E_SYSTEM_ERROR 

System error occurred.


NOTES

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