Parameter - force evaluate expression

If I have parameters on digital assets that are expressions I sometimes find it useful to have another parameter that shows the result of the expression. I can obviously middle mouse on a parameter to show the evaluated result but is there a way to show the evaluated result by default?

I feel like the answer is no so my solution would be to use callbacks for any parameter that affects the expression then update the 'result' parameter as a raw string, unless anyone has a better suggestion?

You can left-click on any parameter in Houdini and that will toggle the display between the expression and the result of the expression.

I know, I was just hoping to be able to show a parameter in its 'result' state by default - without having to click on it first. Just in case I make an asset and another artist might not know you can toggle between the expression and the result of the expression

An expression field is always green to remind you that you can click to reveal what is driving the result.
