NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       menu_mark - get and set the menu mark string

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_mark(MENU *menu, const char *mark);
       const char *menu_mark(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       In  order  to  make  menu selections visible on older terminals without
       highlighting or color capability, the menu library marks selected items
       in a menu with a prefix string.

       The  function  set_menu_mark  sets  the mark string for the given menu.
       Calling set_menu_mark with a null  menu	item  will  abolish  the  mark
       string.	 Note  that  changing the length of the mark string for a menu
       while the menu is posted is likely to produce unhelpful behavior.

       The default string is "-" (a dash). Calling set_menu_mark with  a  NULL
       menu argument will change this default.

       The function menu_mark returns the menu's mark string (or NULL if there
       is none).

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  function  menu_mark  returns  NULL	 on   error.	The   function
       set_menu_mark may return the following error codes:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR    [Toc]    [Back]
	    System error occurred (see errno).

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT    [Toc]    [Back]
	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       curses(3X), menu(3X).

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  header  file  <menu.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file

PORTABILITY    [Toc]    [Back]

       These routines emulate the System V menu library.  They were  not  supported
 on Version 7 or BSD versions.
