I have added one button into wireshark using GTK2 APIs.(wireshark-1.10.1)

When this button is pressed, pop-up dialog of capture + display filter appears to user.

User selects capture filter, display filter and interface.

Now, when OK button is pressed, the wireshark should start capturing with both selected capture and display filters.

I have already developed GUI part.

I don't know how to fire action event when OK is pressed ? I mean how to start capturing with selected filter ?

I have gone through wireshark GTK code and done development of my requirement.

I have added a new button on GUI. Clicking on this button will open pop-up dialog box of interface, capture filter, and display filter. Selecting relevant parameters and clicking ok will start capture with selected capture + display filters.
