NAME

form_field_opts - set and get field options

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <form.h>
int set_field_opts(FIELD *field, Field_Options opts);
int field_opts_on(FIELD *field, Field_Options opts);
int field_opts_off(FIELD *field, Field_Options opts);
Field_Options field_opts(const FIELD *field);

DESCRIPTION

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

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

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

The function field_opts returns the field's current option bits.

The following options are defined (all are on by default):
O_VISIBLE
  The field is displayed. If this option is off, display of the field is suppressed.
O_ACTIVE
  The field is visited during processing. If this option is off, the field will not be reachable by navigation keys. Please notice that an invisible field appears to be inactive also.
O_PUBLIC
  The field contents are displayed as data is entered.
O_EDIT
  The field can be edited.
O_WRAP
  Words that do not fit on a line are wrapped to the next line. Words are blank-separated.
O_BLANK
  The field is cleared whenever a character is entered at the first position.
O_AUTOSKIP
  Skip to the next field when this one fills.
O_NULLOK
  Allow a blank field.
O_STATIC
  Field buffers are fixed to field's original size. Turn this option off to create a dynamic field.
O_PASSOK
  Validate field only if modified by user.

E_OK The routine succeeded.
E_BAD_ARGUMENT
