int input_visual([vix])
int               vix


vix (optional) specifies that the visual attribute index used to indicate the current input field is set to vix. If none is provided, then the function returns the field's current visual index. The vix default is 1, which typically indicates highlighting.

Specifying a vix of -1 turns off any changes for ``active'' fields.

The index's associated visual attributes are stored in .key files for each terminal type. (See Key Mapping in the DesignVision Users Guide for more information.)


Changes the input visual attribute to blinking (see trim.vis).
