FORMS(3)                   Library Functions Manual                   FORMS(3)

NAME
     field_just, set_field_just -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;form.h>&gt;

     int
     field_just(FIELD *field);

     int
     set_field_just(FIELD *field, int justification);

DESCRIPTION
     Field justification is only applied to static fields, a dynamic field
     will not be justified.  The default justification for a field is
     NO_JUSTIFICATION.  The field_just() will return the current justification
     value of the given field and the justification may be set by calling the
     set_field_just() function.

PARAMETERS
     The following are the valid justifications for a field:

     NO_JUSTIFICATION  No justification is to be applied to the field.  In
                       practice, this is the same as JUSTIFY_LEFT.
     JUSTIFY_RIGHT     The field will be right justified.  That is, the end of
                       each line will be butted up against the right hand side
                       of the field.
     JUSTIFY_LEFT      The field will be left justified.  That is, the start
                       of each line will be butted up against the left hand
                       side of the field.
     JUSTIFY_CENTER    The field will be centre justified, padding will be
                       applied to either end of the line to make the line
                       centred in the field.

RETURN VALUES
     The functions will return one of the following error values:

     E_OK               The function was successful.
     E_CURRENT          The field specified is the currently active one on the
                        form.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT     A bad argument was passed to the function.
