I'm experiencing an issue for which I couldn't find an answer in Google.

I'm interested in the values of the field wlan.vht.compressed_beamforming_report.phi ('PHI'), which according to the display field reference guide is of type 'Label' and available in versions 2.4.0 to 3.0.2 (mine is 2.6.9, so I assume that's ok).

To display the values of 'PHI' in a column, I right-click on the value in the packet details pane, and choose the option 'Apply as column'.

However, the value that shows up in the column is a simple 'tick', while the value in the packet details pane is very different (e.g., check this screenshot, with the expected value highlighted in the packet details pane).

My questions are:

  • What exactly is the protocol field type 'Label'?
  • Why isn't the 'correct' value showing up in the column after I do 'Apply as column'?
  • I've checked that if I right-click on the value in the packet details pane and choose 'Copy' > 'Description', the pasted value is the expected one. Is it possible to make the 'Description' appear in the column instead?

Wireshark version: Version 2.6.9 (v2.6.9-0-gf1627e90)

OS: Mac OS X 10.11.5
