Keyboard Functionality

The keyboard plays a large role when navigating in GPUView. With many of the menu items, the keystrokes are provided for easy reference.


You can use several keystrokes for zooming. The collection is listed in the GPUView menu. To zoom in or out a little, press the A or Z key. Pressing the S and X keys perform the same actions, but with an order of magnitude larger zoom in (or zoom out). If there is a mouse selection and CTRL+Z is pressed, GPUView zooms to the selection time frame. CTRL+H resets the zoom to the home or maximum extent. Pressing the ESC key, when there is no selection, also extends the viewport to its maximum extent.


The different dialogs can be found from the View and Tools main menu items in GPUView. They all use a combination of the CTRL key plus a letter. For instance, CTRL+M brings up the Module Info dialog.


The charts are all based on a combination of the CTRL key plus a function key.


There are a couple of different ways to adjust the thread view level. From the main menu, you can use CTRL+P to toggle through the levels increasing one level at a time or use either the PLUS SIGN (+) or MINUS SIGN (-) key to increase or decrease one level. If you know the level you want to view, press the number pad for that particular level. Supported numbers are 1 through 6.


To quickly enable viewing the first VSync, press the F8 key. The F8 key toggles the show state of the first VSync.

Note  To view the second or third VSync, select the check box in the Event Listing dialog.


The arrow keys apply directly to the scrolling of the main window. To move a little, press the arrow key in the direction you want the viewport to move over the data. These keystrokes can be combined with the Control (CTRL) key to move a larger increment. PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN also work for scrolling vertically.
