In my AETemplate I'm using the command:

swatchDisplayPort $nodeName;

to display a swatch of my MR Material, however nothing is being shown (just an icon with the maya logo). Is there a way to preview the material or control what attributes get sent to be previewed in the swatch?

Thanks.

Ah ... I just saw a posting previously by Bart, suggesting to edit the mentalrayCustomNodeClass.mel file. I'll give that a try and report back!
