DESCRIPTIONThe function set_form_fields changes the field pointer array of the given form. The array must be terminated by a NULL.
The function form_fields returns the field array of the given form.
The function field_count returns the count of fields in form.

The function field_count returns ERR if the form parameter is NULL.
The functions set_form_fields and move_field return one of the following codes on error:
- The routine succeeded.
- Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

NOTESThe header file <form.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.

The SVr4 forms library documentation specifies the field_count error value as -1 (which is the value of ERR).
