I’d like to add a new Plugin IF function to get the currently displayed frame number.  I believe I can do it like this:

  1. Create the function that does the work in main_window.cpp
    • static guint32 plugin_if_mainwindow_get_framenr()
  2. Create plugin_if hook in main_window.cpp
    • plugin_if_register_gui_cb(PLUGIN_IF_GET_FRAMENR, plugin_if_mainwindow_get_framenr);
  3. Add an entry to the typedef enum for plugin_if_callback_t in plugin_if.h
  4. Add a function to plugin_if.c such as:
    • extern guint32 get_current_framenr()
  5. Make this function available to plugins by adding the following to plugin_if.h
    • WS_DLL_PUBLIC guint32 plugin_if_get_framenr();

Before I get carried away writing code


·        Would this be acceptable as an addition to Wireshark?

·        Is the above correct?


Thanks and regards…Paul
