thanks for answer ;).

Ok..i know about finch...but why not to do something new with controls i
like..etc. And mainly I've got jabber client as my school project...

Well..im not aware of gnt..i have been searching internet for a long time
before using just plain ncurses..but c++ wrapper didnt work for me..and
ncurses has a nice tutorial...so why not to use it..now i have almost
complete whole ui..it just stop working after adding new form..But i guess i
have somewhere some memory issue..cos i figured out, that  cmd_form =
new_form(cmd_field); returns null...and errno is set to -4 =>

if i use just ncurses code from my aplication and little modify it ... i can
use 2 forms and it'll work..:/. Im really curious if i find where the
problem is..:(.

its quite pitty i didnt found anything about gnt....but now i will not
change way how i do ui..when its almost working already. And a lot of effort
is in it...
