menu_attributes(3)                             menu_attributes(3)

       menu_attributes - color and attribute control for menus

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_fore(MENU *menu, chtype attr);
       chtype menu_fore(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_back(MENU *menu, chtype attr);
       chtype menu_back(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_grey(MENU *menu, chtype attr);
       chtype menu_grey(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_pad(MENU *menu, int pad);
       int menu_pad(const MENU *menu);

       The  function  set_menu_fore sets the foreground attribute
       of menu. This is the  highlight  used  for  selected  menu
       items.   menu_fore  returns the foreground attribute.  The
       default is A_STANDOUT.

       The function set_menu_back sets the  background  attribute
       of  menu.  This  is the highlight used for selectable (but
       not  currently  selected)  menu   items.    The   function
       menu_back  returns  the background attribute.  The default
       is A_NORMAL.

       The function set_menu_grey  sets  the  grey  attribute  of
       menu.  This  is  the highlight used for un-selectable menu
       items in menus that permit more than one  selection.   The
       function   menu_grey  returns  the  grey  attribute.   The
       default is A_UNDERLINE.

       The function set_menu_pad sets the character used to  fill
       the space between the name and description parts of a menu
       item.  menu_pad returns the given  menu's  pad  character.
       The default is a blank.

       These routines return one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

            System error occurred (see errno).

            Routine  detected  an incorrect or out-of-range argu-

       curses(3) and 3 pages whose names begin with  "menu_"  for
       detailed descriptions of the entry points.


menu_attributes(3)                             menu_attributes(3)

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

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