form_field_userptr(3x)                                  form_field_userptr(3x)




NAME

       set_field_userptr,  field_userptr  -  associate application data with a
       form field


SYNOPSIS

       #include <form.h>
       int set_field_userptr(FIELD *field, void*userptr);
       void *field_userptr(const FIELD *field);


DESCRIPTION

       Every form field has a field that can be used to hold  application-spe-
       cific  data  (that  is,  the  form-driver code leaves it alone).  These
       functions get and set that field.


RETURN VALUE

       The function field_userptr returns a pointer (which may be  NULL).   It
       does not set errno.

       The function set_field_userptr returns E_OK (success).


SEE ALSO

       curses(3x), form(3x).


NOTES

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


PORTABILITY

       These routines emulate the System V forms library.  They were not  sup-
       ported on Version 7 or BSD versions.

       The user pointer is a void pointer.  We chose not to leave it as a char
       pointer for SVr4 compatibility.
