menu_post(3X)							 menu_post(3X)

NAME
       post_menu,  unpost_menu	- write	or erase menus from associated subwin-
       dows

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<menu.h>
       int post_menu(MENU *menu);
       int unpost_menu(MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION
       The function post_menu displays a menu to its associated	subwindow.  To
       trigger	physical  display  of  the  subwindow, use refresh(3X) or some
       equivalent curses routine (the implicit doupdate	triggered by an	curses
       input  request  will do).  post_menu resets the selection status	of all
       items.

       The function unpost_menu	erases menu from its associated	subwindow.

RETURN VALUE
       These routines return one of the	following:

       E_OK The	routine	succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno(3)).

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

       E_POSTED
	    The	menu has already been posted.

       E_BAD_STATE
	    Routine was	called from an initialization or termination function.

       E_NO_ROOM
	    Menu is too	large for  its	window.	  You  should  consider	 using
	    set_menu_format to solve the problem.

       E_NOT_POSTED
	    The	menu has not been posted.

       E_NOT_CONNECTED
	    No items are connected to the menu.

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.
