Hi Jeff,

the second doubt I've implemented following your instructions and I think that it's working! Thx! =)

about the firts one, how can I count how many packets came to my dissector?
I tried to increment a global variable, but if the user scroll down the dissected packets the value of this variable keep increasing. =/

Hi guys,

I have 2 doubt:

1 - How can I know the number of packets that was opened?

I'm not aware of a way to do that (unless you only want to count how many packets came to your dissector).

2 - How can I know when user opens another file? (I want to free some memory before the user opened a new file)

Register an initialization routing with register_init_routine().  This is not called when the file is closed but rather when a (new) file is opened which is often what you want.
