# Revision history [back]

I think @cmaynard would like the same feature. :-)

https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=10379
==============================================================
Maybe Wireshark could be enhanced to make use of the occurrence specifier in display filters similar to when adding custom columns, perhaps even using the same syntax?

For example:  ip.src#1 == 1.2.3.4

========================================================
Maybe it would be possible to extend the display filters somehow to be able to filter based on something like what tshark provides with its "-Eoccurrence=f|l|a" capabilities?  Today, essentially Wireshark filters packets using "-Eoccurrence=a", but if that feature can be added to tshark, then at least in theory it could be added to Wireshark?


This doesn't solve your problem but is a start if you ask for an enhancement.
