BASH: dialog menu with descriptions


I am envisioning a dialog menu with 2 sections, the top 2/3 a menu, then the bottom 1/3 is a message box. When you highlight a menu item it gives you a description of what it does in the message box.

However I am not sure it is possible. Can this be done in BASH?

Hi,

Have a look at tput:

- tput (man page)
- HowTo: Use tput in a shell data entry system
- 6.5. Colours and Cursor Movement With tput

Hope this helps.

Nevermind. I had a lapse in thinking. When you create a menu item you create a description as well.
