Please forgive the newbie but I am struggling to find some basic info on
adding extensions to the Wireshark GUI. I see a lot of info on
Dissectors but almost nothing on extending the GUI menu options. My
company has developed a product that can extend Wiresharks's filtering
capabilities and I would like to develop an "add-on" that allows control
of it directly from the Wireshark GUI through new menu options. I am
NOT looking to add a new Dissector. I have found many examples of that
as well as many references to GDK+.
After days of searching, I have been unable to find an example of
someone else doing something similar to what I need. Or any GUI
extensions for that matter. I am not only looking for programming
examples, but also help understanding the process.
I cannot determine how it would be released if we did develop an
extension. Do I understand the following correctly?
A.An extension can only be added through the "patch" process?
B.It would be totally up to us to distribute instructions to patch, or
distribute a fully compiled release of our own?
I am new to developing for Wireshark and was expecting a more formal
add-on process. Has anyone done something similar?
