It’s in the inspector – Short Name changes the wording just above the dial.

In the inspector click on the attribute button (bottom left).
The attribute column shows which attributes can be changed by messages.

and name of [live.dial] should show up as “hidden”…

No you can’t. Those parameter needs to be fixed so Live knows what the parameter names are (for automation and so).

It is possible, but not officially supported. So if you do not want to automate the parameter in Live than it might work. But when you plan to automate it Emmanuel is right, you might get in trouble.

Could you give the dial an alias to send to things like Push? I have a device in which one live.dial “type” has 2 live.dials (P1, P2) that control different parameters based on what you select for “type.”

Example: if you set “type” to “tape,” then I’d like P1 to display as “speed” and P2 to display as “compression” in Push.

Kind of new to M4L, but I have figured out how to get all of the possible names for P1/P2 into coll objects, then display the correct name in a comment for the UI, but I’d like those variable names to appear in Push instead of “P1″ and “P2.
