Hi, I'm brand new to wireshark and I spotted a feature where you can add your own columns to the Packet List.

I'm interested to have a single column that displays things like dns.time, http.time and any other ".time" fields that there are.

  1. Where can I find the different protocols that take ".time" at the end of them? I searched on the but I didn't find anything. I want to set this up once and have it work for all different protocols that I might encounter
  2. I imagine this can get pretty messy, so can I name all of the items in the "Fields" field as for example "George" and then edit George to keep things neat?

Sorry if I broke any rules before posting, I rarely read those. Thanks for your time and wash your hands

No guarantee this will find all of them:

The grep is for .time"

You can display multiple fields in the Fields: for a column:

dns.time or http.time

I forgot to attach a screenshot, I'm already using the dns.time || http.time format, I was just looking for a way to have just one word written in the "Fields" field, like a global variable or a list or something. Thanks a lot for your answer, have a good day!

EDIT: it appears that I cannot add a screenshot because I don't have 60 points yet. Whatever

You could store it in a Display Filter Macro but would have to copy the macro definition to the column Fields: when it changes.

"time_fields","dns.time or http.time"

If its something that you think would be used often, file an enhancement request
