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

NAME
     post_form, unpost_form -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <form.h>

     int
     post_form(FORM *form);

     int
     unpost_form(FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION
     The post_form() function performs the actions necessary to present the
     form on the curses screen.  If there are any init functions that need to
     be called then they will be called prior to the form being posted and the
     cursor will be positioned on the first active field that can be visited.
     Conversely, the function unpost_form() removes the form from the screen
     and calls any termination functions that were specified.

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.
     E_POSTED           The form is already posted to the screen.
     E_NOT_POSTED       The form was not posted to the screen.
     E_NOT_CONNECTED    There are no fields associated with the form.
     E_BAD_STATE        The function was called from within a init or term
                        function.

     The header <form.h> automatically includes both <curses.h> and <eti.h>.
