Not sure what you referring to. Do you need a node similar to Selector for segments to work with numeric?

I want to wire parameters as regular selector wire but this time in selector mode.
But I assume selector can't be animated

Numeric Selector works like a normal Numeric node. The only difference is that you can use only values that you enter in the selector editor.
You enter a name for each value and that name will be visible in General>Parameters rollout but the value will be used as usual.
So, the answer is: Yes.

To wire parameters i have to register them via keys to get them visible in wire dialog. I dont have access to values because i cant animate list. I cant also animate values in selector edit mode.

I still don`t get what you want to achieve.  :D :D :D
The Numeric>Selector mode is meant to act as predefined values that can be presented in General>Parameter list as a String so the end-user has a better understanding of the Parameter purpose. So, they aren`t meant to be animated.
If you can elaborate more about what you try to achieve with some sketch or any more info maybe we can think of some workaround for you.

I got it now, two different RC objects  :)
I see your problem. Well, the only solution I can think of now in a second is maybe to go with Master Style and make some Arithmetic expressions to create a correlation between those parameters by adding correlated parameters to both Styles as additional parameters to correlate.
I`m in the middle of the project and very close to the deadline so I can put more effort into your problem at the very moment. How urgent is this?

No worries as always deadline is more importnant. I have huge complex scenes and i need to optimize them so i can do other things in meanwhile. I dont want to compicate it to much becuse i have to do animation and it can cause some new problems.

One more suggestion.
I assume you want to keep Selector Mode for End User.
How about introducing a parallel Numeric Parameter that can override Selector Node when this Parallel parameter is changed/animated (or introduce one Boolean parameter to set an override on/off).

Works if Master Style is in Selector Mode and Second (Slave) is in Integer Mode. To get proper array Selector should start from 1 and integer value shoud return Integer+1. You can manipulate Selector only.
