Calling the function field_back() will return the character attributes
that will be applied to a field that is not the current field, these
attributes can be set by the set_field_back() function. The field_fore()
function returns the character attributes that will be used to indicate
that a field is the currently active one on the form, this attribute may
be set by using the set_field_fore() function. The pad character for a
field is the character that will be printed in all field locations not
occupied with actual field contents. The pad character can be retrieved
by calling the field_pad() function, the pad character is set by using
the set_field_pad() function.
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected.
