Default Multiprocessor / read of self-defined process

I can define processes in Multiprocessor and give name, times, ...
During simulation i want to display/show status of Multiprocessor by the name of the self-defined process. I know i can get the number of process but how can i get its name?

the names can be found in the Multiprocessor's state profile. Look at the sample model attached to see, how to access them. I used a string label on the MP, which is set to the current process' name and a visual tool to display that string label.
It is not perfect, because blocking the MP leads to displaying a wrong name, but gives you the idea how to solve that.

Let me know, if you have any questions.

Best wishes
