int post_form(FORM *form);
int unpost_form(FORM *form);
post_form() writes form into its associated subwindow. The application programmer must use curses library routines to display the form on the physical screen or call update_panels() if the panels library is being used.
unpost_form() erases form from its associated subwindow.
These routines return one of the following:
E_OK The function returned successfully.
E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error.
E_BAD_ARGUMENT An argument is incorrect.
E_POSTED The form is posted.
E_NOT_POSTED The form is not posted.
E_NO_ROOM The form does not fit in the subwindow.
The routine was called from an initialization or termination function.
E_NOT_CONNECTED The field is not connected to a form.
