'Result node' for material nodes?

Recommended Posts

One thing I've missed when playing around in the nodes editor is an inbuilt 'result' node similar to that in Xpresso. I did manage to cobble a basic one together using a grpup and anput - but could only see the result in the 'attribute' part of the editor when the node was selected. Ideally I'd like to see it in the node iself in the network - as in the Xpresso version. Is that possible?

This has a bit of a problem since important information for rendering (the context) comes internaly from the right side of the graph. Without a conneciton to the end node this information is not available and the preview would not be correct, if at all possible, Just creating an invisible connection doesn't work since since the results change a lot depending on where in a node graph the specific node is conencted to the right.
To help getting around this you have the individual previews on the nodes.
