…where “input nodes” and “data type” nodes are combined into single components:
Example with Value list: (sorry for not very readable text)
different inputs can be as “meta node” at the same time
Some may have different switchable “Styles”. example: Number as slider\scroller\knob. Can be switched in right-click menu
They would be separately listed in components menu though.
(if input of "input node" is connected) aka read-only mode: just preview (like “Panel” node currently does);
everything else works same (can be as: separate, “meta node” mode, internalized, etc.)
For example: if an input of “input node” has wire:
Degree number slider can still become “meta node” and extracted from parent “create nurbs curve”.
In gh settings: auto pin/unpin inputs:
if on: (as shown on drawed example)
click on input to show input’s node (as pop-up)
auto-hide if click outside
if off: no pin button; clicking on input’s name switches to/from: “meta node mode”/“internalized”
Preview options for “input nodes”:
auto: if separate - on; if “meta node” or internalized - off (but still will be previewed if selected)
