No, a dissector creates fields and sets values into the fields, then users may create color filters based on field values.

Conceptually dissectors should not have any connection with the UI as they don't know how the dissection engine will be invoked.

well okay thanks, thought so because i couldn't find anything within the the readme files or in the internet. I will set proper filter then and add them to my own ws.
