PANEL(3)                NetBSD Library Functions Manual               PANEL(3)


NAME
panel -- z-order for curses windows
LIBRARY
Z-order for curses windows (libpanel, -lpanel)
SYNOPSIS
#include <panel.h>
DESCRIPTION
Overlapping curses windows have no notion of z-order, what you see on the screen depends on the order of updates. The panel library is an exten- sion built on top of curses(3) that adds z-order to curses windows. Each panel has an associated curses window. All currently visible panels form a ``deck''. Panels have z-order only relative to other panels in the deck and to stdscr. The latter doesn't have a panel of its own but implicitly lies below all other panels in the deck. If you mix plain curses windows and panels, the visual results are undefined since the panel library is not aware of windows that are not associated with pan- els. Function Summary bottom_panel(3) move the panel to the bottom of the deck del_panel(3) delete the panel hide_panel(3) hide the panel, removing it from deck move_panel(3) move the panel to a new position on screen new_panel(3) create new panel panel_above(3) a panel above the given panel panel_below(3) a panel below the given panel panel_hidden(3) check if the panel is hidden panel_userptr(3) user data associated with the panel panel_window(3) curses window associated with the panel replace_panel(3) associate a different window with the panel set_panel_userptr(3) associate arbitrary user data with the panel show_panel(3) show hidden panel at the top of the deck top_panel(3) move the panel to the top of the deck update_panels(3) update terminal display
