Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Can I hook menu/GUI functions with LUA?

Actually, my answer assumes you were asking if you can use WSLua to invoke an existing menu (e.g., open the dialog from "Statistics > Conversations").

Is this assumption correct? What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

No, WSLua API won't help you there. It might be possible to use a 3rd-party Lua library via WSLua to do something gross like send menu-navigating key-presses (or window messages) to the Wireshark window, but it's probably easier to implement a WSLua binding for this (file an enhancement request at http://bugs.wireshark.org).

Hi folks,

Can I use LUA to hook various menu functions, rather than add new menu items?
