NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       form_field_opts - set and get field options

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <form.h>
       int set_field_opts(FIELD *field, OPTIONS opts);
       int field_opts_on(FIELD *field, OPTIONS opts);
       int field_opts_off(FIELD *field, OPTIONS opts);
       OPTIONS field_opts(const FIELD *field);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  function  set_field_opts  sets  all the given field's
       option bits (field option  bits  may  be  logically  OR'ed

       The function field_opts_on turns on the given option bits,
       and leaves others alone.

       The function field_opts_off turns  off  the  given  option
       bits, and leaves others alone.

       The function field_opts returns the field's current option

       The following options are defined (all are on by default):

            The  field is displayed.  If this option is off, display
 of the field is suppressed.

            The field is  visited  during  processing.   If  this
            option  is  off,  the  field will not be reachable by
            navigation keys.  Please  notice  that  an  invisible
            field appears to be inactive also.

            The  field contents are displayed as data is entered.

            The field can be edited.

            Words that don't fit on a line  are  wrapped  to  the
            next line.  Words are blank-separated.

            The  field is cleared whenever a character is entered
            at the first position.

            Skip to the next field when this one fills.
            Allow a blank field.

            Field buffers are fixed to field's original size.

            Validate field only if modified by user.
