I will be implementing multiple rows / lists tonight. Say 100 rows of data while I display 25 at a time. Does ncurses provide anything for this, or is it just the usual programming job. I remember reading of off-screen rows and buffers but that's for one field iirc.

I am not asking for programming logic here just anything in ncurses I could have missed, or that someone here has learned after much struggle.

I am aware of the page up and down REQ's. I would have an array of data ready and keep changing the field contents as the user goes below the last field.

btw, When I use the arrow key to go down after the last item, it does jump back to the top. How to disallow that so i can repopulate my fields.

Any tips for multi-row scrollable lists would be very appreciated.
