NAME
free_form, new_form -- form library
LIBRARY
Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)
SYNOPSIS
#include <form.h> int free_form(FORM *form); FORM * new_form(FIELD **fields);
DESCRIPTION
The function free_form() frees all the resources associated with the form and destroys the form. Calling new_form() will create a new form, set the form parameters to the current defaults and attach the passed fields to the form. The array of fields passed to new_form() must be terminated with a NULL pointer to indicate the end of the fields.
RETURN VALUES
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected. The functions that return an int will return one of the following error values: E_OK The function was successful. E_BAD_ARGUMENT The function was passed a bad argument. E_POSTED The form is posted to the screen.
