       <STRONG>menu_win</STRONG> - make and break menu window and subwindow associations


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-SYNOPSIS">SYNOPSIS</a></H2><PRE>
       <STRONG>#include</STRONG> <STRONG>&lt;menu.h&gt;</STRONG>
       int set_menu_win(MENU *menu, WINDOW *win);
       WINDOW *menu_win(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_sub(MENU *menu, WINDOW *sub);
       WINDOW *menu_sub(const MENU *menu);
       int scale_menu(const MENU *menu, int *rows, int *columns);


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-DESCRIPTION">DESCRIPTION</a></H2><PRE>
       Every  menu  has an associated pair of <STRONG>curses</STRONG> windows.  The menu window
       displays any title and border associated with the window; the menu sub-
       window  displays the items of the menu that are currently available for
       selection.

       The first four functions get and set those windows.  It is  not  neces-
       sary  to set either window; by default, the driver code uses <STRONG>stdscr</STRONG> for
       both.

       In the <STRONG>set_</STRONG> functions, window argument of <STRONG>NULL</STRONG> is treated as though  it
       were <STRONG>stsdcr</STRONG>.  A menu argument of <STRONG>NULL</STRONG> is treated as a request to change
       the system default menu window or subwindow.

       The function <STRONG>scale_menu</STRONG> returns the minimum size required for the  sub-
       window of <EM>menu</EM>.


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-RETURN-VALUE">RETURN VALUE</a></H2><PRE>
       Routines  that  return  pointers  return  <STRONG>NULL</STRONG> on error.  Routines that
       return an integer return one of the following error codes:

       <STRONG>E_OK</STRONG> The routine succeeded.

       <STRONG>E_SYSTEM_ERROR</STRONG>
            System error occurred (see <STRONG>errno(3)</STRONG>).

       <STRONG>E_BAD_ARGUMENT</STRONG>
            Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       <STRONG>E_POSTED</STRONG>
            The menu has already been posted.

       <STRONG>E_NOT_CONNECTED</STRONG>
            No items are connected to the menu.

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