Description

The function set_item_opts sets all the given item's option bits (menu option bits may be logically-OR'ed together).

The function item_opts_on turns on the given option bits, and leaves others alone.

The function item_opts_off turns off the given option bits, and leaves others alone.

The function item_opts returns the item's current option bits.

There is only one defined option bit mask, O_SELECTABLE. When this is on, the item may be selected during menu processing. This option defaults to on.

Except for item_opts, each routine returns one of the following:

E_OK
The routine succeeded.
E_SYSTEM_ERROR
System error occurred (see errno).
