NAME

       set_form_userptr, form_userptr - associate application data with a form
       item


SYNOPSIS

       #include <form.h>
       int set_form_userptr(FORM *form, void *userptr);
       void* form_userptr(const FORM *form);


DESCRIPTION

       Every form and every form item has a field that can  be  used  to  hold
       application-specific  data  (that  is,  the  form-driver code leaves it
       alone).  These functions get and set the form user pointer field.


RETURN VALUE

       The function form_userptr returns a pointer (which may  be  NULL).   It
       does not set errno.

       The function set_form_userptr returns E_OK (success).


SEE ALSO

       curses(3x), form(3x).


NOTES

       The  header  file  <form.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file
       <curses.h>.


PORTABILITY

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

       The user pointer is a void pointer.  We chose not to leave it as a char
       pointer for SVr4 compatibility.
