What is the use of scripting name

I am a bit confused about ‘scripting name’. It seems many people like to make a scripting name for each variable. Can you tell me what is the merit of it ?

Thanks
J

The scripting name names the object. You need it whenever you want to address an object (i.e. hide, show or move it programmatically) or for a storage object like [pattrstorage] where the objects are the “clients” and stored with their name.

yep, you can address objects with javascript or via [thispatcher]. So in one sense it’s like using patch cords without using patch cords…you can set values, change attributes, etc. without needing to actually connect to the object…it’s like magic!
