How to have triggers for wireshark... i.e. i would like wireshark to capture the packets after a particular packet type

Ex: custom.type = = 10 then show all the packets from the point you get that type to be 10

Using filter we can show all the packets with the same type but the thing is i would like to have the wireshark display all the packets of any type until the trigger action occurs

As of now, this functionality does not yet exist; however, there is an open bug report for it, namely bug 3967, and it's also mentioned on the wishlist.
