Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Capture start and capture stop icons in the toolbar
From: Evan Huus <[email protected]>

So I finally got back to this and played with some of the
platform-specific features as well as some of the features that have
landed in trunk since 1.8 was released.

I have linked two more wireframes.

== Input v2 ==

The first wireframe [1] is a second draft of the "Input" tab for the
Capture Options dialogue. It is similar to my first draft, with the
following differences:

- Replaced "Add Pipe" with "Add..." since there are several different
interface types we might want to add, and put an equivalent "Delete"
button beside it.

- Minor string change for "Use promiscuous mode on all interfaces" checkbox

- Make it a little clearer that the "Help", "Start Capture" and
"Close" buttons are outside the tab frame. This applies to the other
two tabs of the dialogue as well, but is sufficiently trivial that I
didn't redraw them.

- Add the default capture filter field that is now in trunk. I
reworked this slightly by putting it into its own subframe and adding
some buttons. The button that was previously doubling as a label has
now been put on its own as "Manage Filters...". A "Save..." button was
added for creating new saved filters without opening up the Manage
Filters dialogue. "Compile" got a string change - the term "BPF" is
jargon that we shouldn't be exposing except in special circumstances
(I debated removing this button altogether, or perhaps renaming it to
"Show Compiled Form...", any thoughts?).

== Add Interface ==

The second wireframe [2] is a completely new dialogue that would be
opened when the user chooses "Add..." in the Capture Options dialogue.
It has a Name and Type fields, and a "Details" subframe that changes
depending on which type is chosen. The rest should be fairly
self-explanatory.

====

I also plan at some point to wireframe a new version of the "Edit
Interface Settings" dialogue that is launched currently by
double-clicking on an interface, but I'm not sure when I'll get around
to it. I hope to integrate the special Windows-only "Interface
Details" panel into it if I can.

Thoughts? Constructive criticism is always welcome :)

Cheers,
Evan
