i'm working on my plugin c dissector and i would like to generate an expert info which shows the right value.

For example:

i compare two timestamps and if the delta of the timestamps is too long, i would like to generate the message:

"timedelta between t2 and t1 is too long, max value = ..." So i would have the tree with both timestamps, the delta time and the expert info.

Unfortunately not documented , look at expert_add_info_format (in epan/expert.h) which allows an arbitrary formatted string.
