Getting a bit cheeky aren't we?  It's kind of like post-it note art...

I guess it is not a suitable solution for all situations. Actually I can only think of my own example as a truly useful case :)

Well, as long as it works. Don't count on it always working though or keeping on working as I change the way solutions are handled in some future version.

It is inside RunScript (which for all I know is highly dangerous, although no errors so far). I'm composing custom xml, calling GH_Archive.Deserialize_Xml and then GH_Archive.ExtractObject to add the components to the document.

Interesting. Are you adding those components inside the RunScript method? I.e. while a solution is in progress?

interesting development!

@frans, to me this maybe makes sense for params with sigle inputs and outputs, but what happens when there is multiple. There was a discussion about this with David on the forum somewhere.

you did it :) amazing

Very,, very interesting I can imagine lots of people having difficulties comprehending tree structures that are going to love this. Thumbs up Andrew.

Would it be possible to use this approach to substitute existing components, but keeping their connections? Let's say I want to replace a slider with a number component or vice versa. 

For me that would be a real improvement in my workflow.
