Enables or disables scrolling.
Curses Library (libcurses.a)
scrollok( Window, Flag)
The scrollok subroutine enables or disables scrolling. Scrolling occurs when a program or user:
If enabled, curses calls a refresh as part of the scrolling action on both the window and the physical display. To get the physical scrolling effect on the terminal, it is also necessary to call the idlok (idlok Subroutine) subroutine.
If scrolling is disabled, the cursor is left on the bottom line at the location where the character was entered.
|Flag||Enables scrolling when set to TRUE. Otherwise, set the Flag parameter to FALSE to disable scrolling.|
|Window||Identifies the window to enable or disable scrolling in.|
WINDOW *my_window; scrollok(my_window, TRUE);
WINDOW *my_window; scrollok(my_window, FALSE);
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
