ncurses_slk_init — Initializes soft label key functions


bool ncurses_slk_init ( int $format )

This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

Initializes soft label key functions

This function must be called before ncurses_initscr() or ncurses_newterm() is called.



If ncurses_initscr() eventually uses a line from stdscr to emulate the soft labels, then this parameter determines how the labels are arranged of the screen.

0 indicates a 3-2-3 arrangement of the labels, 1 indicates a 4-4 arrangement and 2 indicates the PC like 4-4-4 mode, but in addition an index line will be created.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
