Description

int ncurses_color_set ( int $pair )

Sets the active foreground and background colors. Any characters written after this function is invoked will have these colors. This function requires terminal colors to be supported and initialized using ncurses_start_color() beforehand.

ncurses uses color pairs to specify both foreground and background colors. Use ncurses_init_pair() to define a color pair.

Parameters

The color pair from which to get the foreground and background colors to set as the active colors.

Return Values

Returns -1 on success, and 0 on failure.

<?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);
