GDT Window

Display the Global Descriptor Table (GDT).


CPU Structure > GDT




The Index column displays the index number of the descriptor table. To configure the display of the descriptor table window, select Set Range from the pop-up menu.
The Selector column displays the selector which corresponds to the index entry in the first column. The selector value is the value used by system software and inside the segment registers to refer to an index inside the table.
This column shows the descriptor type name of an entry.
The Description column displays additional information about the entry. To analyze and modify the details of a descriptor structure, select Modify from the pop-up menu.

Pop-up Menu

Opens a Modify Descriptor dialog box where you can edit values of the descriptor table.
Update All
Updates the contents of the descriptor table window.
Set Range
Opens the Display GDT dialog box where you can configure the start index and the number of index entries to display. For example, this is useful if you wish to look at the last entries of a large table without uploading all the data from the target.
Display Mode
Switches the display of the descriptor tables to match the current, 32-bit, or 64-bit mode. Switching the mode can be useful when you want to view the descriptor tables in a certain mode before the target has actually entered it.
