Thanks Woei.. Really appreciated.

Just a little question... It is possible to avoid the update pin, so every new patch has the color of the root.v4p (where I placed your node)?

Nothing fancy, just set the value @80 to have a darker background for my eyes.
(For me 80 is the limit under which the node color and the link interfere with eachother.)

Tryed to delete the IF and obviously strange thighs happened.

Can you also access links color?
(like CTRL+H does)

Thanks bye

@robe: you could just connect a toggle to the update pin instead of the default bang. should do the trick.
although you might not want to have the plugin crawl your whole project every frame to set the color. that's why there's an update pin.

the link color is set implicitly by changing it to hiddenwhenlocked mode. didn't find a way to explicitly set the color.
