Hello,

I have a working dissector now, and have figured out many part of how to
display individual values, fields, strings, etc. I have some subtrees as
well, but...

I have some data in my own protocol that is really a set of 512, 2 byte bit
fields, and I want to display something like:

Generator 1   Fielda
Generator 1   Fieldb
Generator 1   Fieldc
Generator 1   Fieldd
Generator 2   Fielda
Generator 2   Fieldb
Generator 2   Fieldc
Generator 2   Fieldd
...

Where field a-d are bitfields. I know how to get the bits into a useful
value, but I have no idea really how to
display something like this?

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Sincerely,
    John Jamulla
