13.14.9. Formatting the Stack contents

To change the way stack contents are displayed:

  1. Right-click on any Stack entry to display the context menu.

  2. Select the required format from the context menu:

    Signed Decimal

    Displays the memory contents as negative or positive values where the maximum absolute value is half the maximum unsigned decimal value.

    Unsigned Decimal

    Displays the memory contents from 0 up to the highest value that can be stored in the number of bits available.


    Displays memory contents as hexadecimal numbers.

    Hexadecimal with leading Zeros

    Displays memory values in hexadecimal format including leading zeros.

    This is the default display format for data values in this view.

    Show ASCII

    Adds another column to the Stack view, on the right hand side, to show the ASCII value of the memory contents.

    ASCII format displays column values as characters. The ASCII format is useful if, for example, you are examining the copying of strings and character arrays by transfer in and out of registers.

    Any non-printable value is represented by a period (.).
