Not out of the box, no you're not going to get a quick and snappy gui information like that.

But it'd be easy enough to figure that out. Select the points in question in the viewport, delete everything else, create a line between them (add SOP), and then get its perimeter (measure SOP). Big plus is that you can then change geometry before that point and the length (permieter) will update down the chain as long as the point count doesn't change. But you could create groups in a clever way and those would be more robust.

However, I would recommend building your setup in such a way that you don't need to know the distance between two points. That's veracular Houdini :)

VERNACULAR! Gahhh.

Houdini is awesome, but in sidefx, they like to make simple things so complicated..! :mellow:
