Not that I know. The last time I ran a program like that, it would draw the line chars just well. Perhaps something is brohkenz with your termcap or console-tools installation. How do you draw the window borders? can you post a link to your test pgm?

I believe the mouse input can be got with gpm in the text terminal. Or perhaps that was just for copy&paste.. Not sure tho if that still exists/works..
oh, there:

Thanks Johann

I am actually mixing C and er... cobol(don't throw things at me..!)

I split off the cobol and tried to cut things down for a simple example. I am boxing subwindows.

Thanks for the gpm link I didn't know this.

Thanks again-Patrick

#include <ncurses.h>

int create_sentence_subwins(void)

sentence_build = subwin(stdscr,3,81,0,0);
    if(sentence_build== NULL)
{ endwin(); puts("Unable to create sentence build window\n"); return(1); }

wbkgd( sentence_build,COLOR_PAIR(2) );

    return 0;
