I would like to add protocol information such as is available in the wiki directly into the Wireshark interface, either via a mouse over text box popup or in a view window. Is there a mechanism to do this?

Thanks, Tom

Something like that was done in ..ui/gtk/proto_help.c but the code was never ported to the newer GTK API but it can perhaps be used as an inspiration. Note that we are moving over to Qt so any GUI code should primary be written for Qt. Porting the old code to new GTK API may have some merrit.
