How to differenciate the way a number is controlled ?

Hi,
I would like to block a message when a number is changed with its inlet but let the message go through when it is changed with the mouse.
Is there a way to do this ?
I have tried ubutton and mousestate but it doesn’t really work the way I want.
Would really appreciate if someone has an idea. I’m stuck.
Here is a simple patch :

You can send the message ‘set x’ to a number box to set its value (to x) without triggering any output.

Thanks for your answer.
The thing is other parts of the patch use the ints sent from this number, so I can’t just display them with the set message.

Thanks a lot.
Actually the set message was my solution, with a parallel set of sends / receives.
