DESCRIPTION
       The  Cdk	 slider	 widget	creates	a visual slider	box with a label and a
       slider field.  The following are	functions which	create	or  manipulate
       the Cdk slider box widget.

AVAILABLE FUNCTIONS
       activateCDKSlider
	    activates  the  slider  widget and lets the	user interact with the
	    widget.

	    o	The parameter slider is	a pointer to a non-NULL	slider widget.

	    o	If the actions parameter is passed with	a non-NULL value,  the
		characters in the array	will be	injected into the widget.

		To  activate  the  widget interactively	pass in	a NULL pointer
		for actions.

	    If the character entered into this widget is RETURN	 or  TAB  then
	    this  function  will return	a value	from the low value to the high
	    value.  It will also set the widget	data exitType to vNORMAL.

	    If the character entered into this widget was ESCAPE then the wid-
	    get	returns	the unknownInt value (see the cdk_objs.h header	file).
	    The	widget data exitType is	set to vESCAPE_HIT.

       destroyCDKSlider
	    removes the	widget from the	screen and  frees  memory  the	object
	    used.

       drawCDKSlider
	    draws the slider widget on the screen.  If the box option is true,
	    the	widget is drawn	with a box.

       eraseCDKSlider
	    removes the	widget from the	screen.	 This  does  NOT  destroy  the
	    widget.

       getCDKSliderBox
	    returns true if the	widget will be drawn with a box	around it.

       getCDKSliderHighValue
	    returns the	high value of the slider widget.

       getCDKSliderLowValue
	    returns the	low value of the slider	widget.

       getCDKSliderValue
	    returns the	current	value of the widget.

       injectCDKSlider
	    injects a single character into the	widget.

	    o	The parameter slider is	a pointer to a non-NULL	slider widget.

	    o	The  parameter	character  is the character to inject into the
		widget.

		The return value and  side-effect  (setting  the  widget  data
		exitType) depend upon the injected character:

		RETURN or TAB
		       the  function returns a value ranging from the slider's
		       low value to the	slider's high value.  The widget  data
		       exitType	is set to vNORMAL.

		ESCAPE the  function  returns  the  unknownInt	value (see the
		       cdk_objs.h header file).	 The widget data  exitType  is
		       set to vESCAPE_HIT.

	    Otherwise  unless modified by preprocessing, postprocessing	or key
	    bindings, the function  returns  the  unknownInt  value  (see  the
	    cdk_objs.h	header	file).	 The  widget  data  exitType is	set to
	    vEARLY_EXIT.

       moveCDKSlider
	    moves the given widget to the given	position.

	    o	The parameters xpos and	ypos are the new position of the  wid-
		get.

		The parameter xpos may be an integer or	one of the pre-defined
		values TOP, BOTTOM, and	CENTER.

		The parameter ypos may be an integer or	one of the pre-defined
		values LEFT, RIGHT, and	CENTER.

	    o	The  parameter relative	states whether the xpos/ypos pair is a
		relative move or an absolute move.

		For example, if	xpos = 1 and ypos = 2  and  relative  =	 TRUE,
		then the widget	would move one row down	and two	columns	right.
		If the value of	relative was FALSE then	the widget would  move
		to the position	(1,2).

		Do not use the values TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT,	or CENTER when
		relative = TRUE.  (weird things	may happen).

	    o	The final parameter refresh is a boolean  value	 which	states
		whether	the widget will	get refreshed after the	move.

       newCDKSlider
	    function  creates  a  slider  widget and returns a pointer to it..
	    Parameters:

	    screen
		 is the	screen you wish	this widget to be placed in.

	    xpos controls the placement	of the	object	along  the  horizontal
		 axis.	 It may	be an integer or one of	the pre-defined	values
		 LEFT, RIGHT, and CENTER.

	    ypos controls the placement	of the object along the	vertical axis.
		 It  may  be  an integer or one	of the pre-defined values TOP,
		 BOTTOM, and CENTER.

	    title
		 is the	string to display at the top of	the widget.  The title
		 can  be  more	than  one line;	just provide a carriage	return
		 character at the line break.

	    label
		 is the	string to display in the label of the slider field.

	    fillerCharacter
		 is the	character to be	used to	draw the  slider  bar  in  the
		 field.

	    fieldWidth
		 controls  the width of	the widget.  If	you provide a value of
		 zero the widget will be created with the full	width  of  the
		 screen.   If you provide a negative value, the	widget will be
		 created the full width	minus the value	provided.

	    currentValue
		 is the	value of the slider field when	the  widget  is	 acti-
		 vated.

	    lowValue and

	    highValue
		 are the low and high values of	the widget respectively.

	    increment
		 is the	regular	increment value

	    fastIncrement
		 is the	accelerated increment value.

	    box	 is true if the	widget should be drawn with a box around it.

	    shadow
		 turns the shadow on or	off around this	widget.

	    If	the  widget  could  not	 be created then a NULL	pointer	is re-
	    turned.

       positionCDKSlider
	    allows the user to move the	widget around the screen via the  cur-
	    sor/keypad keys.  See cdk_position (3) for key bindings.

       setCDKSlider
	    lets  the programmer modify	certain	elements of an existing	slider
	    widget.  The parameter names  correspond  to  the  same  parameter
	    names listed in the	newCDKSlider function.

       setCDKSliderBackgroundAttrib
	    sets the background	attribute of the widget.

	    The	parameter attribute is a curses	attribute, e.g., A_BOLD.

       setCDKSliderBackgroundColor
	    sets the background	color of the widget.

	    The	parameter color	is in the format of the	Cdk format strings.

	    See	cdk_display (3).

       setCDKSliderBox
	    sets whether the widget will be drawn with a box around it.

       setCDKSliderBoxAttribute
	    function sets the attribute	of the box.

       setCDKSliderHorizontalChar
	    sets  the  horizontal  drawing  character for the box to the given
	    character.

       setCDKSliderLLChar
	    sets the lower left	hand corner of the widget's box	to  the	 given
	    character.

       setCDKSliderLRChar
	    sets  the lower right hand corner of the widget's box to the given
	    character.

       setCDKSliderLowHigh
	    sets the low and high values of the	widget.

       setCDKSliderPostProcess
	    allows the user to have the	widget call a function after  the  key
	    has	been applied to	the widget.

	    o	The parameter function is the callback function.

	    o	The parameter data points to data passed to the	callback func-
		tion.

	    To learn more about	post-processing	see cdk_process	(3).

       setCDKSliderPreProcess
	    allows the user to have the	widget call a function after a key  is
	    hit	and before the key is applied to the widget.

	    o	The parameter function is the callback function.

	    o	The parameter data points to data passed to the	callback func-
		tion.

	    To learn more about	pre-processing see cdk_process (3).

       setCDKSliderULChar
	    sets the upper left	hand corner of the widget's box	to  the	 given
	    character.

       setCDKSliderURChar
	    sets  the upper right hand corner of the widget's box to the given
	    character.

       setCDKSliderValue
	    sets the current value of the widget.

       setCDKSliderVerticalChar
	    sets the vertical drawing character	for the	box to the given char-
	    acter.

KEY BINDINGS
       When  the  widget  is  activated	there are several default key bindings
       which will help the user	enter or manipulate the	 information  quickly.
       The  following  table outlines the keys and their actions for this wid-
       get.
