menu_spacing(3X)					      menu_spacing(3X)

       menu_spacing - Control spacing between menu items.

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu,
			    int spc_description,
			    int spc_rows,
			    int spc_columns);
       int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu,
			int* spc_description,
			int* spc_rows,
			int* spc_columns);

       The  function  set_menu_spacing	sets  the  spacing information for the
       menu.  Its parameter spc_description  controls  the  number  of	spaces
       between	an  item  name and an item description.	 It must not be larger
       than TABSIZE.  The menu system puts in the middle of this spacing  area
       the  pad	 character.   The remaining parts are filled with spaces.  The
       spc_rows parameter controls the number of rows that  are	 used  for  an
       item.  It must not be larger than 3.  The menu system inserts the blank
       lines between item rows, these lines will contain the pad character  in
       the appropriate positions.  The spc_columns parameter controls the num‐
       ber of blanks between columns of items.	It must	 not  be  larger  than
       TABSIZE.	  A  value  of 0 for all the spacing values resets them to the
       default, which is 1 for all of them.
       The function menu_spacing passes back the spacing info  for  the	 menu.
       If a pointer is NULL, this specific info is simply not returned.

       Both  routines  return  E_OK  on	 success.  set_menu_spacing may return
       E_POSTED if the menu is posted, or E_BAD_ARGUMENT if one of the spacing
       values is out of range.

       curses(3X), curs_variables(3X), menu(3X).

       The  header  file  <menu.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file

       These routines are specific to ncurses.	They  were  not	 supported  on
       Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.  It is recommended that any
       code depending on them be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
