NAME         top

       menu_hook - set hooks for automatic invocation by applications

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_item_init(MENU *menu, Menu_Hook func);
       Menu_Hook item_init(const MENU *menu);
       int set_item_term(MENU *menu, Menu_Hook func);
       Menu_Hook item_term(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_init(MENU *menu, Menu_Hook func);
       Menu_Hook menu_init(const MENU *menu);
       int set_menu_term(MENU *menu, Menu_Hook func);
       Menu_Hook menu_term(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions make it possible to set hook functions to be called
       at various points in the automatic processing of input event codes by
       menu_driver.

       The function set_item_init sets a hook to be called at menu-post time
       and each time the selected item changes (after the change).
       item_init returns the current item init hook, if any (NULL if there
       is no such hook).

       The function set_item_term sets a hook to be called at menu-unpost
       time and each time the selected item changes (before the change).
       item_term returns the current item term hook, if any (NULL if there
       is no such hook).

       The function set_menu_init sets a hook to be called at menu-post time
       and just after the top row on the menu changes once it is posted.
       menu_init returns the current menu init hook, if any (NULL if there
       is no such hook).

       The function set_menu_term sets a hook to be called at menu-unpost
       time and just before the top row on the menu changes once it is
       posted.  menu_term returns the current menu term hook, if any (NULL
       if there is no such hook).
