This release improves Structure View data visualizer. In previous versions, packet fields were not displayed until the user expanded the packet in the Structure View data visualizer. Starting from version 8.33, Structure View uses its standard field visualization algorithm to display top-level packet data. This includes, for example, the evaluation of the display attribute for a top-level or sub-level protocol.
Additionally, the new built-in visualize() function is available to protocol definition code. It provides a way to invoke standard field visualization algorithm for the protocol definition code.
Network and serial protocols have been updated to take advantage of the new feature. Now the user will be able to see the type and basic fields of each network or serial packet without expanding it in the Structure View.
