menu_userptr()

associate application data with a menu item 

Curses Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <menu.h>

int set_menu_userptr(MENU *menu, const void *userptr);

const void *menu_userptr(const MENU *menu);


DESCRIPTION

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


RETURN VALUES

Except for menu_userptr() (which returns NULL on error), each function returns one of the following:

E_OK 

The routine succeeded.

E_SYSTEM_ERROR 

System error occurred.


NOTES

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


PORTABILITY

These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.

The user pointer should be a void pointer. We leave it as a char pointer for SVr4 compatibility.
