menu_items(3X)							menu_items(3X)

NAME
       menu_items - make and break connections between items and menus

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<menu.h>
       int set_menu_items(MENU *menu, ITEM **items);
       ITEM **menu_items(const MENU *menu);
       int item_count(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION
       The function set_menu_items changes the item pointer array of the given
       menu.  The array	must be	terminated by a	NULL.

       The function menu_items returns the item	array of the given menu.

       The function item_count returns the count of items in menu.

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

       The  function  item_count  returns ERR (the general curses error	return
       value) if its menu parameter is NULL.

       The function set_menu_items returns one of the following	codes  on  er-
       ror:

       E_OK The	routine	succeeded.

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
	    Routine detected an	incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       E_NOT_CONNECTED
	    No items are connected to the menu.

       E_POSTED
	    The	menu is	already	posted.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), menu(3X).

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

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

       The  SVr4  menu	library	 documentation	specifies the item_count error
       value as	-1 (which is the value of ERR).
