ncurses_start_colorInitializes color functionality

Description

int ncurses_start_color ( void )

Initializes color functionality in ncurses. This function must be called before any color manipulation functions are called and after ncurses_init() is called. It is good practice to call this function right after ncurses_init().

Parameters

This function has no parameters.

Return Values

Returns 0 on success, or -1 if the color table could not be allocated or ncurses was not initialized.

Examples

Example #1 Writing a string with a specified color to the screen

<?php
ncurses_init
();

// If the terminal supports colors, initialize and set active color
if (ncurses_has_colors()) {
    
ncurses_start_color();
    
ncurses_init_pair(1NCURSES_COLOR_YELLOWNCURSES_COLOR_BLUE);
    
ncurses_color_set(1);
}

// Write a string at specified location
ncurses_mvaddstr(1010"Hello world! Yellow on blue text!");

// Flush output to screen
ncurses_refresh();

ncurses_end();
?>
