13.13.1. Changing the display size for viewing memory contents

The display size used for viewing memory contents varies depending on the data types supported by your target processor.

To change the display size for viewing the memory contents, select the required size from the Size of fields list in the Memory view toolbar. Figure 13.35 shows an example Memory view displaying two byte values.
