DESCRIPTION

       The UI_STRING gets created internally and added to a UI whenever one of the functions
       UI_add_input_string(), UI_dup_input_string(), UI_add_verify_string(),
       UI_dup_verify_string(), UI_add_input_boolean(), UI_dup_input_boolean(),
       UI_add_info_string(), UI_dup_info_string(), UI_add_error_string() or UI_dup_error_string()
       is called.  For a UI_METHOD user, there's no need to know more.  For a UI_METHOD creator,
       it is of interest to fetch text from these UI_STRING objects as well as adding results to
       some of them.

       UI_get_string_type() is used to retrieve the type of the given UI_STRING.

       UI_get_input_flags() is used to retrieve the flags associated with the given UI_STRING.

       UI_get0_output_string() is used to retrieve the actual string to output (prompt, info,
       error, ...).

       UI_get0_action_string() is used to retrieve the action description associated with a
       UIT_BOOLEAN type UI_STRING.  For all other UI_STRING types, NULL is returned.  See
       UI_add_input_boolean(3).

       UI_get0_result_string() and UI_get_result_string_length() are used to retrieve the result
       of a prompt and its length.  This is only useful for UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY type
       strings.  For all other UI_STRING types, UI_get0_result_string() returns NULL and
       UI_get_result_string_length() returns -1.

       UI_get0_test_string() is used to retrieve the string to compare the prompt result with.
       This is only useful for UIT_VERIFY type strings.  For all other UI_STRING types, NULL is
       returned.

       UI_get_result_minsize() and UI_get_result_maxsize() are used to retrieve the minimum and
       maximum required size of the result.  This is only useful for UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY
       type strings.  For all other UI_STRING types, -1 is returned.

       UI_set_result_ex() is used to set the result value of a prompt and its length.  For
       UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY type UI strings, this sets the result retrievable with
       UI_get0_result_string() by copying the contents of result if its length fits the minimum
       and maximum size requirements.  For UIT_BOOLEAN type UI strings, this sets the first
       character of the result retrievable with UI_get0_result_string() to the first ok_char
       given with UI_add_input_boolean() or UI_dup_input_boolean() if the result matched any of
       them, or the first of the cancel_chars if the result matched any of them, otherwise it's
       set to the NUL char "\0".  See UI_add_input_boolean(3) for more information on ok_chars
       and cancel_chars.

       UI_set_result() does the same thing as UI_set_result_ex(), but calculates its length
       internally.  It expects the string to be terminated with a NUL byte, and is therefore only
       useful with normal C strings.

RETURN VALUES

       UI_get_string_type() returns the UI string type.

       UI_get_input_flags() returns the UI string flags.

       UI_get0_output_string() returns the UI string output string.

       UI_get0_action_string() returns the UI string action description string for UIT_BOOLEAN
       type UI strings, NULL for any other type.

       UI_get0_result_string() returns the UI string result buffer for UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY
       type UI strings, NULL for any other type.

       UI_get_result_string_length() returns the UI string result buffer's content length for
       UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY type UI strings, -1 for any other type.

       UI_get0_test_string() returns the UI string action description string for UIT_VERIFY type
       UI strings, NULL for any other type.

       UI_get_result_minsize() returns the minimum allowed result size for the UI string for
       UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY type strings, -1 for any other type.

       UI_get_result_maxsize() returns the minimum allowed result size for the UI string for
       UIT_PROMPT and UIT_VERIFY type strings, -1 for any other type.

       UI_set_result() returns 0 on success or when the UI string is of any type other than
       UIT_PROMPT, UIT_VERIFY or UIT_BOOLEAN, -1 on error.
