Track name change listener, not responding

Hell again! So many questions during these holiday times. =) I could be wrong but this feels like a bug somewhere...

I can't seem to use "Selected track's value has changed" as a listener in a reaction.

This is my test action, show the selected tracks name and that works fine when using a button press as listener:

But this as a listener won't make it run:

..this is not my actual script but i wanted other stuff to happen anytime the selected track is renamed.. should work, right?

The screenshot is form my actual script that I want to run on initialization or whenever a track is moved, added, renamed etc etc and the renaming part doesn't do much.

Definitely something going on here..

If I choose a specific track's name as a listener, it works fine, but selected track doesn't. (Out of curiosity I tested to use "Selected Parameter's name value changed" and that also works, anywhere I rename a parameter trigs it.)

So, this works, and I can choose what channel to use just fine[0].add_name_listener

..but changing to "selected channel" gives me nothing. Curious if anyone else gets this too?

I just checked this and you're right.
The selected track listener is stuck to whichever track is selected when the script first initialises.
I will make a note of this to be investigated.

Ah that's great, thanks! It's strange though since "selected track" work fine in other occasions but..

I wonder if there's something similar or even connected with that other problem I mentioned here:

..where this works:[4].devices[1].parameters[1].add_value_listener

but not this (even though m2 is set to 4):[self.get_modifier_value("m2")].devices[1].parameters[1].add_value_listener

It will just listen to the device parameter in track 0.

Ah but this must at least be the exact same problem as I mentioned in verdeal's thread, the view.add_selected_drum_pad_listener thing, also worked on specific track but not selected track, good stuff!

I found temporary workaround for most issues, but this thing I can't just figure out. Not sure if it's the same bug but it's something around using modifiers as channel numbering..

If I use numbers here for the Highlight Navigation funktion, everything is ok, but when I change to modifiers the buttons still work but the LED feedback stops working. The weirdest thing is that the exact same setup works fine in another script, using modifiers.

Ok so that last one, the difference between the projects was that I had Track Selectors for the one that works and the LED feedback came from there so that was fixable. I mean, I don't need for anything else and if Highlight Navigation works with numbered channels I suppose it should work with modifiers too but..

The otther one ([0].parameters[1].add_value_listener) still bugs me though, for most cases I covered it with a bunch of alternative listeners but it's not water proof.
