   * **Reflection** The current spot is shaded for a reflection.   * **Reflection** The current spot is shaded for a reflection.

Please note, this will only return a result if, at most, one of the ray types is set. Because a ray will never have more than one type.
   * **None** This is the opposite of **Some** and will only return true if none of the types and properties are set for the current ray.   * **None** This is the opposite of **Some** and will only return true if none of the types and properties are set for the current ray.

-==== Invert Output ==== 
  
-===== Node Connections =====+This control is only available if the Boolean input is connected. It will cause the value of the Boolean input to be combined with the result of the ray type check using Boolean Logic as explained [[tools:bool_logic#operation|here]]. 
 +==== Invert Output ==== 
 + Inverts the output of the result of the Boolean Operation. 
 +===== Connections =====

 +
 +==== Boolean ====
 +
 +This allows you to connect another boolean value to this node.
 +
 +If this input is connected, you can use [[#Pass-through]] to completely by-pass this node or the [[#Boolean Operator]] to combine this input with the result of the comparison in the node.
 +
 +==== Ray Type ====
 +
 +An alternative way to input a specific ray type into the node. Usually the node will fetch the ray type from the current context, so it's not needed.
 +
 +==== Boolean (Output) ====
 +
 +Either 0 if the result of all operations is false, or 1 if it is true.
