int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu, int spc_description int spc_rows, int spc_columns);
int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu, int* spc_description int* spc_rows, int* spc_columns);
The function set_menu_spacing() sets the spacing
information for the menu. spc_description() controls the
number of spaces between an item name and an item description. It
must not be larger than TABSIZE(). The menu system puts in
the middle of this spacing area the pad character. The
remaining parts are filled with spaces. spc_rows()
controls the number of rows that are used for an item. It must not
be larger than 3. The menu system inserts then blank lines
between item rows, these lines will contain the pad character in the
appropriate positions. spc_columns() controls
the number of blanks between columns of items. It must not
be larger than TABSIZE. A value of 0 for all the spacing
values resets them to the default, which is 1 for all of
them. The function menu_spacing() passes back the spacing
info for the menu. If a pointer is NULL,
this specific info is simply not returned.
Both routines return E_OK on success.
return E_POSTED if the menu is posted, or
E_BAD_ARGUMENT if one of the spacing values is out of range.
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes
the header file <curses.h>.
These routines are specific to ncurses. They were not
supported on Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.
It is recommended that any code depending on them be conditioned using
