In the network editor, you can hit “Shift-T” to switch to “list mode”. Once there, right click on the header at the top of the list, and set the “List Order” to “Input/Output”. I believe that will give the hierarchy view you're looking for?

(novice) help with Python script July 10, 2017, 9:11 a.m.

I assume you entered the code for that function directly into a Python Shell window? If so, that function is not defined in the hou.session module, it is defined as a global in the context of that python shell. So you should be able to run:

set_opencl(hou.node('/obj/sim'), 1)

But I presume you actually want this function defined in the hou.session module so that it gets saved to the hip file and is available the next time you load this hip file. To do this, go to Windows -> Python Source Editor. Make sure the “Source File” is set to “hou.session module”, and enter your function in that window. Then you'll be able to run:

hou.session.set_opencl(hou.node('/obj/sim'), 1)
