Ah, OK. Yes, adding another add button or using a drop down button + go.
While everyone seems to be adding their wishes, now that someone is actually
is working on that code: Would it make sense to add a button (or whatever)
to scan for newly created/activated interfaces? When I'm running Wireshark
and add a new interface (I'm on Linux and run e.g. "iw dev wlan0 interface add
mon0 type monitor" + "ifconfig mon0 up" or just up an interface that was down,
I need to restart Wireshark for the new interface to be detected. Checking
for new interfaces at runtime or be shown also interfaces that are admin down
would be a nice to have :-)
