DESCRIPTION


Unlike single-valued menus, multi-valued menus enable the end-user to
select one or more items from a menu. set_item_value() sets the selected
value of the item -- TRUE (selected) or FALSE (not selected).
set_item_value() may be used only with multi-valued menus. To make a menu
multi-valued, use set_menu_opts or menu_opts_off() to turn off the option
O_ONEVALUE. (See menu_opts(3CURSES)).


item_value() returns the select value of item, either TRUE (selected) or
FALSE (unselected).

RETURN VALUES


set_item_value() returns one of the following:

E_OK
The routine returned successfully.


E_SYSTEM_ERROR
System error.


E_REQUEST_DENIED
The menu driver could not process the request.
