 Forums >>  IDA Pro  >>  Identify RVA data in IDA Pro

Topic created on: May 6, 2016 11:38 CDT by ssultana .

I want to read the data value at a given address in IDA Pro. I found it can be achieved by DWord(address) function. However in case the value is RVA of a function (as below), Dword() gives RVA 7E094D (where image_base is 300000), as expected.

.rdata:00CC0024                 dd rva sub_AE094D

Is there any simple way how IDA Pro/Python scripting can tell me that a data value is RVA so that I can add the image_base to it to get the absolute address?

(despite this being a year old post) you can just check its xrefs and use that to get the direct address.
