Returns the colors in a color pair.
Curses Library (libcurses.a)
pair_content (Pair, F, B) short Pair; short *F, *B;
The pair_content subroutine returns the colors in a color pair. A color pair is made up of a foreground and background color. You must call the start_color subroutine before calling the pair_content subroutine.
Note: The color pair must already be initialized before calling the pair_content subroutine.
|OK||Indicates the subroutine completed successfully.|
|ERR||Indicates the pair has not been initialized.|
|Pair||Identifies the color-pair number. The Pair parameter must be between 1 and COLORS_PAIRS-1.|
|F||Points to the address where the foreground color will be stored. The F parameter will be between 0 and COLORS-1.|
|B||Points to the address where the background color will be stored. The B parameter will be between 0 and COLORS-1.|
To obtain the foreground and background colors for color-pair 5, use:
short *f, *b; pair_content(5,f,b);
For this subroutine to succeed, you must have already initialized the color pair. The foreground and background colors will be stored at the locations pointed to by f and b.
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The start_color subroutine, init_pair subroutine.
