C programming HELP, ncurses window functions

I'm new to C and i just figured out how to associate a window with a menu...
my question is... Is there any way I could resize the window.... I've been looking in man for hours and I can't seem to find a solution

Here is my code:

/* Create the window to be associated with the menu */
my_menu_win = newwin(12, 0, 2, 0);

/* Set main window and sub window */
set_menu_win(my_menu, my_menu_win); /*??*/
set_menu_sub(my_menu, derwin(my_menu_win, 0, 0, 1, 1));
set_menu_format(my_menu, 10, 1);

box(my_menu_win, 0, 0);

PS: also what is the set_menu_sub for?

Depending on your requirements or interest pdmenu may provide a better fit then ncurses. I was going to use ncurses to provide a menu based console app. So non-linux users could SSH in and be provided with a menu only option.

This way I would not have to worry so much about then typing .... pdmenu worked great.
