Is it possible to change slider control via text changing

Hi there, this might be a weird question, but i really need it if its possible. So on After Effects project there are statistic bar graphs done by slider controller. What i need is, if possible, instead of slider controller i would like to change graphs with changing text. I can keep slider controller, but i have to change graphs with text.

Let's say you have something controlled by a slider on a null. That might look like this:

thisComp.layer("controls").effect("Slider Control")("Slider");

If instead, you wanted to use a number in a text layer, you could do it like this:

parseFloat(thisComp.layer("text").text.sourceText);

Is that what you mean?
