NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       menu_format - set and get menu sizes

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_format(MENU *menu, int rows, int cols);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The function set_menu_format sets the maximum display size

       size is larger than the menus subwindow and the  subwindow
       is  too  small to display all menu items, post_menu() will

       The  default  format  is  16  rows,  1  column.    Calling
       set_menu_format  with a null menu pointer will change this
       default.  A zero row or column argument to set_menu_format
       is  interpreted  as  a  request  not to change the current

       The function menu_format  returns  the  maximum-size  constraints
  for the given menu into the storage addressed by
       rows and cols.
