Byte count between measurement bars when using analyzers

SPI / Async Serial / I2C and maybe some others analyzers could show the number of bytes that it has decoded between measurement bars. This could also fill in the bottom right display in the new Logic UI to show a list of just the selected bytes in a list, for monitoring individual transactions.

    I have been wanting this feature ever since the original Logic 8 came out. However I would like to amend the feature request. Please add the ability to zoom into a specific byte count position once the count has been obtained. For example I may not want to see the first 56 bytes of a 120-byte packet payload, but do want to view bytes 57-64. Scrolling by hand counting bytes on screen is too labor intensive and very prone to miscounting.

    It would also be nice to be able to have the serial bits on one or more channels between the markers decoded and displayed as hex.

    A simpler feature which might address Rory's request would be to count the number of rising or falling transitions of a channel between the measurement bars. In simple cases you can calculate the number of bytes from the number of transitions.

    At any rate, byte count (or edge count) can be useful when debugging firmware. Did you actually transmit or receive the number of bytes you expected?
