sm_inputopens the keyboard for data entry or menu selection. This function is called automatically by Panther; use it only if you write your own executive.
sm_inputcalls sm_getkey to get and process keyboard entry. While in data entry mode, ASCII data can be entered into fields according to their restrictions or properties.
sm_inputreturns when one of these events occurs:
- A return entry field is filled or tabbed from.
If sm_getkey returns one of these logical keys—XMIT, EXIT, HELP, or a cursor position key—a routing table determines how to process it. Routing options are set by sm_keyoption.
