Text Control effect

So I've been doing some stuff with expressions lately, and I was wondering if there is anything like a Text Control effect, similar to a Slider Control effect. Like if I wanted to change the text of a text layer based on the text in the Text Control effect.

This is what I would like it to look like:

I essentially want to change the text in a text layer by linking it to an effect rather than the Source Text of a text layer.

Does something like this exist?

Hi!

I don't think any text control like this exists but the workaround would be to link the source text to a layer name or to a marker comment (at least, this is how I would do this).

Cheers,
Florian

You could have your text in a precomp and have the precomp in your main comp with time remapping applied. That would let you use a slider to change the text, but it wouldn't let you use text animators on it. :(
