NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       menu_spacing - Control spacing between menu items.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu,
			    int spc_description,
			    int spc_rows,
			    int spc_columns);
       int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu,
			int* spc_description,
			int* spc_rows,
			int* spc_columns);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  function  set_menu_spacing	sets  the spacing informations for the
       menu.  spc_description controls the number of spaces  between  an  item
       name  and  an item description. It must not be larger than TABSIZE. The
       menu system puts in the middle of this spacing area the pad  character.
       The remaining parts are filled with spaces.  spc_rows controls the number
 of rows that are used for an item. It must not be  larger  than  3.
       The menu system inserts then blank lines between item rows, these lines
       will contain the pad character in the appropriate positions.   spc_col-
       umns  controls  the  number of blanks between columns of items. It must
       not be larger than TABSIZE.  A value of 0 for all  the  spacing	values
       resets them to the default, which is 1 for all of them.
       The function menu_spacing passes back the spacing info for the menu. If
       a pointer is NULL, this specific info is simply not returned.

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

       Both routines return  E_OK  on  success.  set_menu_spacing  may	return
       E_POSTED if the menu is posted, or E_BAD_ARGUMENT if one of the spacing
       values is out of range.

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	are  specific  to ncurses.  They were not supported on
       Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.  It is recommended that any
       code depending on them be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
