Is it possible to display information dissected by a upper level dissector on the info column, using a lower level plugin? For example, display isup´s calling party number using a modified mtp3 plugin.

Technically yes, it could be done if you recompile Wireshark with some column-related code changes; otherwise no. However, you could basically accomplish what you want without having to recompile Wireshark by adding a custom column for the isup calling party number, and there are a couple of ways to do that:

  1. Expand the ISDN User Part packet details tree and find the "ISUP Calling Number: xxxxxxxxx" field, then right-click on it and choose, "Apply as Column". Rearrange the column into any position you like by dragging and dropping.
  2. From the main menubar: Edit -> Preferences -> Columns -> Add -> Field type: Custom -> Field name: isup.calling -> edit the Title to your liking -> Drag and drop the new column field type to its desired location -> Click OK.
