I have defined some custom columns through prefs.c. The columns which I have defined take values from fields registered through my custom dissector. But the problem is that in packet details the value of these fields are displayed as strings(As I have used vals() function in dissector code) but while the same field is used in column the raw value is displayed.

Which version are you using? In recent versions you can rightclick on the column title and check "Show Resolved". I'm not sure if that was already added in 1.6.x or that you need to install 1.7.x.

I am using version 1.7.1. There is an option of "Show Resolved" and it is already checked. Unchecking it converts the value into hexadecimal.
