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

NAME
     field_just, set_field_just -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <form.h>

     int
     field_just(FIELD *field);

     int
     set_field_just(FIELD *field, int justification);

DESCRIPTION
     Field justification is only applied to static fields, a dynamic field
     will not be justified.  The default justification for a field is NO_JUS-
     TIFICATION.  The field_just() will return the current justification value
     of the given field and the justification may be set by calling the
     set_field_just() function.

PARAMETERS
     The following are the valid justifications for a field:

     NO_JUSTIFICATION  No justification is to be applied to the field.  In
                       practice, this is the same as JUSTIFY_LEFT.
     JUSTIFY_RIGHT     The field will be right justified.  That is, the end of
                       each line will be butted up against the right hand side
                       of the field.
     JUSTIFY_LEFT      The field will be left justified.  That is, the start
                       of each line will be butted up against the left hand
                       side of the field.
     JUSTIFY_CENTER    The field will be centre justified, padding will be
                       applied to either end of the line to make the line cen-
                       tred in the field.

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

     E_OK               The function was successful.
     E_CURRENT          The field specified is the currently active one on the
                        form.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT     A bad argument was passed to the function.
