I would like to modify certain parameters (e.g. a slider in a color correction effect) from within a jsx script. Usually this requires the index or name of an associated layer which I do not want to hard code. Is there a way to get pickwhip like behavior so the user just clicks or drags on the desired parameter and my script gets a pointer / index to it ?

The only thing I can think of would be to use the CompItem's selectedLayers() and/or selectedProperties() methods, which you could use in the callback routine for your slider. Something like that.

Hi, this script or parts of its code might help you.
