Display Mode

Parent Previous Next

A memory window can display memory contents in various ways. The Display Mode dialog, available from memory window's context menu allows you to configure how the window displays.


Memory window's Display Mode dialog



Display Format

Determines the number format shown in the numerical display area.

If the 'Character Display' option is checked an ASCII display will be shown.


Display Unit Size

This setting determines how many bytes will be grouped to form a value in the numerical display area.

For example if the display type is set to 'Signed Decimal' and display unit size to '2 bytes' the values shown will range from -32768 to 32767.

For float display type unit sizes of 4 and 8 are available, for all other display types sizes of 1, 2 and 4 bytes can be used.


Note: the memory window always aligns itself according to display unit size setting. (If 4 bytes are selected, the window will align itself on a 4-byte boundary).


Organization

When grouping several bytes, their ordering inside the group can be specified either to 'Low Byte First' which should be used on Zilog and most Intel CPUs, and 'High Byte First' used on Motorola CPUs.

Example:


Memory Address

0

1

Data

0xAA

0xBB


Low Byte First (little endian): WORD value is 0xBBAA

High Byte First (big endian): WORD value is 0xAABB


Character Display

This option selects whether the memory contents will be shown with characters or not.


Real-time Access

Selects whether real-time access is used or not.
