You probably have a If(tree) before setting the col_info e.g col_info only gets called if

A tree is built.

Best regards

Ämne: [Wireshark-dev] Info column problem continued


Hi ,


This mail is with reference to my mail send on 20th. April 2007 with the title "Info column display problem".


I have written a dissector which is for a proprietary protocol.

It is getting dissected well , but I'm only facing problem with the display in "info" column.


When I load my packet , the info column does not give any display if the display filter is not set to my protocol name say xxx. Once I set the display filter to xxx, I get the proper display in the info column.

But if I load a sua packet or any other protocol packet , the info column displays information even when the display filter is not set to "sua" or that protocol name .


In my wireshark gui I can see that the "colorize packet list" is ticked i.e. it is set.


Could anyone please suggest me the reason for this behavior with my plugin.


Regards ,
