MENU_ITEMS(3)              Library Functions Manual              MENU_ITEMS(3)

NAME
     item_count, menu_items, set_menu_items -- attach items to menus or check
     correspondences

LIBRARY
     Curses Menu Library (libmenu, -lmenu)

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

     int
     item_count(MENU *menu);

     ITEMS **
     menu_items(MENU *menu);

     int
     set_menu_items(MENU *menu, ITEM **items);

DESCRIPTION
     The item_count() menu function returns the number of items currently
     attached to the menu passed.  The menu_items() function returns a pointer
     to an array of item pointers that represent the menu items currently
     attached to the given menu.  Apart from using new_menu() (see
     menu_new(3)) menu items may be attached to a menu by calling
     set_menu_items() any items currently attached to the menu will be
     detached and the NULL terminated array of new items will be attached to
     the menu.

RETURN VALUES
     Any function returning a string pointer will return NULL if an error
     occurs.  Functions returning an integer will return one of the following:

     E_OK         The function was successful.
     E_POSTED     The menu is already posted.
     E_CONNECTED  An item was already connected to a menu.

SEE ALSO

NOTES
     The header &lt;menu.h&gt; automatically includes both &lt;curses.h&gt; and &lt;eti.h&gt;.
