Not as such, I guess.

What exactly are you trying to achieve?
One can use Smart Object copies to simulate some Styles, but that may provide for a convolutes workaround.

Hi,
Thanks for the replay. What I'm trying to achieve is the following:
When transforming a layer with a style the values change. for instance,values on a gradient applied to a layer gets recalculated based on the size of the the object.
I would like to keep the values without resterizing the layer. I want them not to change and I want to be able to go back and change them based on my judgment not the software calculation. It's like the link provided on a inner-shadow style, you can un-check the link box but the problem is everything changes,smart object aren't much of a solution.
I know it sound complicated, but I do work on complex project that sometimes require custom settings. Please, let me know if my question is still unclear. Feel free to look at the type of work that I do at: www.mrazmik.blogspot.com
Thank you.

»values on a gradient applied to a layer gets recalculated based on the size of the the object.«
You could uncheck »Align with Layer«, but then the gradient exists relative to the document dimensions.

I know, but the scale effect. will effect to all (darken the value of the gradient) in narrow areas. How about having something such as content aware fill, to fill in the areas that have different scales?

If I understand your request correctly I suspect that is way beyond the scope of Layer Styles as it would depend on a fairly comprehensive analysis of the layer’s transparency.
Because the effect you seem to desire would be dependent on distances of pixels in contiguous solid areas I wonder if that would even be achievable with a (relatively simple) Filter.
