Hide-show constants of nodes in projects


#1

This could be related to this topic idea-show-values-of-nodes-inputs-on-nodes , although what I can think of is something about constants , what added to change value in patch would give a greater feature to the node (in my opinion)

Here is an example, if I create a node with constants, to be part of a project are hidden

graphic-node

when using it in another project …

nodes

@nkrkv what possibility is there to add an option to show-hide? or I’m complicating things :thinking:

I’m sorry if I do not understand correctly. Are you talking about the following?

  • You are creating a new patch pi
  • You put a single constant-number there with value bound to 3.14159
  • You add an output terminal and link the constant with it
  • Now you put a node of pi on patch main
  • You see the lable pi on it, but would better see 3.14159

Right?


#3

yes, something like that would be

ps: Thinking well there is not much sense, because with a label it would be solved, the idea arose looking for a way to do something that would work like this with bool, and output byte

binary pixel


#4

if I change the name to a constant I stop seeing the value

I would like something like that

value
