Searching through decoded protocols for multiple bytes patterns

Searching through decoded protocols for multiple bytes patterns
When searching through the decoded patterns, I'd like to be able to search for multi-byte patterns. I.E. when I've decoded a channel for Async Serial, and I enter 0xFB10 as a search term, it finds all cases where 0xFB then 0x10 occurred chronologically/sequentially. In the attached example, I would expect all the search terms below to return the waveform epoch.
• 0xFB
• 0xFB10
• 0x100032
• ( The attached is a bad example, but being able to search with ASCII strings would also be great )

    We're still working on improving real-time view at the moment, and other scope-like features for our product. Because of that, this feature is still further out in our development pipeline.

    Hello Mark,

    Is there any chance that this is implemented?

    I was monitoring idea list from time to time and I am quite surprised that this idea is not yet planned even though ideas with much lower vote count were started.
    There is already search for single bytes so extending this feature to find sequences of bytes in decoded protocols shouldn't be difficult and looks like many people would benefit from having it.
    Could you please consider adding it to your list?

    This would be very useful It also doesn't seem to be complex so why It is not available 4 years later.

    +1 for arbitrary (multi-byte) search function - I picture this as similar to searching text with regular expressions, but without needing to export the data first

    yes I assumed searching for 0x41,0x42,0x43 would work and it did not.
    I propose comma separated values A,B,C or 0x41,B,0x43
    a smart search to find ascii hex decimal binary -- want extra credit add wild carding bytes like 0x41,*,0x42 or double comma 0x41,,0x43 for don't care bytes.

    In addition, I would like to designate specific bit locations in my search pattern as a "don't care".
