DisplayMode Enumeration

Defines identifiers that indicate the display modes used by ByteViewer.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly:  System.Design (in System.Design.dll)

public enum DisplayMode

Member nameDescription
HexdumpA hexadecimal format display.
AnsiAn ANSI format display.
UnicodeA Unicode format display.
AutoA display mode that automatically selects a display mode. In this mode, the bytes are examined to determine if they are hexadecimal or printable. If the bytes are in hexadecimal format, the Hexdump mode is selected. If the characters match a printable character set, a test is run to automatically select either the Ansi or Unicode display mode.

The DisplayMode identifiers are used to indicate the display mode used to display each byte sequence.

The following code example demonstrates how to use DisplayMode identifiers. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ByteViewer class.
