The NID Dialog allows you to specify a node in the file and how to interpret that node.

  • NID The node to interpret. This may be prepopulated if you had a node selected in the NBT
  • Parent NID Parent of the node. If non-zero, the NID field above will be interpretted as a subnode NID to open from this node.
  • HID Certain types (below) require a HID value to be choosen as the root.
  • Type The manner in which to interpret the node
    • Node Size Show a graphical representation of the distribution of blocks that make up this node throughout the file.
    • Heap-On-Node (HN) Interpret the node as a heap
    • Element Stream (ES) Interpret the node as an element stream - or a raw sequence of bytse
    • BTree on Heap Interpret the node as a BTree On Heap. This requires a HID value - if none is given, it is assumed that the client root value of the Heap is the root of the BTH
    • TCVROOTINDEX Interpret the node as a TCVROOTINDEX structure. This is an undocumented structure stored as a shadow node on the tables where the index for the views are kept.
    • Property Context View the node as a property context.

Interpretting the nodes as a Table Context (TC) is an exercise left up to the reader. This tool also does not provide a mechanism for viewing subnodes of subnodes.
