show

Use the show command to display the current context of ADEdit. The command shows the domains ADEdit is bound to, the objects that are currently selected, and all available data for each selected object as it is stored in memory.

You should note that the command returns stored object data as it currently exists in memory. If you use ADEdit commands to change objects, but have not yet saved the data back to Active Directory, the information returned by the show command will not match the object data stored in Active Directory.
