FORMS(3)                NetBSD Library Functions Manual               FORMS(3)

NAME
     dynamic_field_info, field_info -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <form.h>

     int
     dynamic_field_info(FIELD *field, int *drows, int *dcols, int *max);

     int
     field_info(FIELD *field, int *rows, int *cols, int *frow, int *fcol,
         int *nrow, int *nbuf);

DESCRIPTION
     The function dynamic_field_info() returns the sizing information for the
     field given.  The function will return the number of rows, columns and
     the maximum growth of the field in the storage pointed to by the drows,
     dcols and max parameters respectively.  Dynamic field information cannot
     be requested for the default field.  If the field given is not dynamic
     then dynamic_field_info() will simply return the size of the actual
     field.  The field_info() will return the number or rows, columns, field
     starting row, field starting column, number of off screen rows and number
     of buffers in rows, cols, frow, fcol, nrow and nbuf respectively.

RETURN VALUES
     The functions will return one of the following error values:

     E_OK               The function was successful.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT     A bad argument was passed to the function.
